In 1996 Grand Tuhon Leo T. Gaje, the Keeper of the Pekiti-Tirsia Kali system, founded the Pekiti-Tirsia Europe Organization as his official European representation and as the European Pekiti-Tirsia Headquarters. This is the only Pekiti-Tirsia Kali organization in Europe that has been authorized by the Grand Master of Pekiti-Tirsia Kali.
The Pekiti-Tirsia Europe Organization is the head of all Pekiti-Tirsia Organizations in Europe. It is responsible for all European Affairs (especially for founding country organizations and examination of students and instructor candidates). Currently the Pekiti-Tirsia Europe has representations in Bulgaria, Finland, Germany, Italy, Sweden, Switzerland and Czech Republik. More representations to come.
Managing Director of the Pekiti-Tirsia Europe is Uli Weidle, who is the highest ranked Pekiti-Tirsia Kali teacher in Europe. He was ranked by Grand Tuhon Leo T. Gaje as Maginoo Mandala 5th Hagdan (according to the traditional Kali ranking scheme used by Grand Tuhon Leo T. Gaje). Uli Weidle is also responsible for the Pekiti-Tirsia Germany Organization.
