Grand Tuhon in Lethbridge

We really appreciate Grand Tuhon Leo Gaje flying to Canada. It is also his first time in Alberta. After training with the team in Edmonton, GT and Agalon Herald drove 6 hours to Lethbridge, AB.

Lethbridge is a small city with under 100,000 people. It’s close to the Montana, United States border. Lethbridge and area offers plenty of summer activities. Golfing, horseback riding, live theatres, cultural festivals, and Waterton National Park is only an hour away.

Lethbridge is also the home of the Pekiti Tirsia Kali Lethbridge and Magrath Training Groups. This may be the newest PTK training group in Canada. The moment GT walked in he was welcomed by an energetic round of applause!

Nobody was left behind.

Even though training was only for three hours, it was intense. There were some folks that have never seen Pekiti or any forms of FMA before. Intense footwork, angular strikes, and passion is something that Grand Tuhon instilled in everyone.
Many were sore yet still happy for the opportunity to train with the Blade master.

Inspired Kali Kids meeting GT.

GT took the time to shake everyone’s hand and give them words of encouragement. He signed autographs and welcomed photo ops to everyone.

The kids loved this opportunity. They really made the effort to learn and get better. Way the go Kali Kids!

Words cannot express my gratitude for GT's love for us.

Until next time Grand Tuhon, we will train by the hours not by the years. Next time you visit you can up the intesity some more. Safe travels. From your training group in Southern Alberta. One PTK!

    It was an amazing experience to train with Grand Tuhon. My experience with watching him with the children was a great example to me. He is firm, clear and at the same time interacts with with love and amusement in his eyes. It is clear to me there is balance of character in this great man. I am grateful for the time he has taken to be with us here in Alberta. Thank you Grand Tuhon. It is an honor.
