We teach two Martial Art Systems:
1.) Counterpoint Tactical Systems
Counterpoint Tactical Systems, also known by the acronym CTS, is a weapon-based martial art designed by Master Zach Whitson. CTS is designed for street based self defense with a foundation of real world tactical counter offense. Many martial art systems have influenced CTS with the largest coming from traditional Filipino Martial Arts.
This description is from the CTS website:
Being an integrated martial art, CTS uses tactics from various arts based on multiple attackers, weapons, range or strategy to formulate a cohesive curriculum. As the range changes so does the combative tactics. Categories of training include weapons techniques such as single and double stick, knife, staff, gun, and the combination of stick and dagger; and empty hand techniques such as kicking, stomping, striking, punching, trapping, locking, throwing and ground fighting.
