United Fist Martial Arts is led by

Mandala Quent Roxas.

U.F.M.A specializes in an indigenous form of Filipino Martial Arts called Pekiti Tirsia Kali which is sought after by many elite military and law enforcement factions world wide because of its highly lethal methods of self-defense/protection.

The PTK system focuses on edged, impact & improvised weapons, which is immediately

transferable to empty hands for civilian use.

Pekiti Tirsia Kali is the official martial arts combat system of the Philippine Marine Corps and is the only Filipino Martial Arts system recognized as the official war-fighting art doctrine by the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP).

Pekiti-Tirsia Kali was founded in 1897 and is the system of the Tortal family.

The sole heir and guardian of this system is Grand Tuhon Supremo Leo Gaje Jr.

Pekiti-Tirsia is strictly a combat-oriented system, as opposed to a sport-focused fighting style.

In 1972 Grand Tuhon Leo Gaje Jr moved to the United States and shortly after began to teach his family martial art fighting system.


Up to that point, it was a fighting system that had never been taught outside of the Philippines. 

Today, Gaje continues to teach his art of Pekiti Tirsia to students of martial arts, personal security,

law enforcement and militaries worldwide.
