The Counterpoint Tactical System, also known by the acronym CTS, is a weapon-based integrated martial art designed for the street with an emphasis on real-world tactical counter offense. Although an eclectic martial art, the counterpoint tactical systems largest traditional influence can be found in the Filipino Martial Arts. The purpose of CTS is to train and certify students and instructors, making them well versed in every phase of civilian armed and unarmed combat. The CTS curriculum is designed with a survival based philosophy and is not intended to be practiced or used as a sport. CTS uses a “Civilian Use of Force Continuum” to help students better understand real-world self-defense and how to appropriately respond to a bad situation.

The ‘Doce Pares’ is an Escrima/Arnis Martial Arts Club that was founded in Cebu City in January 12, 1932. Originally it was a breakaway group of students and instructors from the ‘Labangon Fencing Club’ of the 1920’s which was influenced heavily by the Saavedra and Cañete families. The original instructors of the Doce Pares taught their own particular families, island’s or region’s styles of Escrima and their particular interpretation of their own styles. The Doce Pares was made famous in the international scene during the 60’s, 70’s, 80’s and 90’s by the Cañete family, especially Ciriaco ‘Cacoy’ Cañete and later by his nephew Dionisio ‘Diony’ Cañete. The specific style of Doce Pares that we practice is Cacoy Doce Pares Escrima/Escrido. It is a very fast close quarter single stick system that helps the student develop physical and mental attributes and spontaneity that translate in all areas of self-defense.

Brazilian jiu-jitsu (‘BJJ, or Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu) is a martial art, combat sport, and a self-defense system that focuses on grappling and especially ground fighting. Brazilian jiu-jitsu was formed from Kodokan Judo ground fighting (Ne-Waza) fundamentals that were taught to Carlos Gracie by master Mitsuyo Maeda. Brazilian jiu-jitsu eventually came to be its own art through the experimentations, practices, and adaptation from the Judo knowledge of Carlos and Helio Gracie, who then passed their knowledge onto their family. Today, BJJ is one of the most popular martial arts around the world and can be seen in MMA/UFC due to its effectiveness in controlling and submitting opponents in all forms of combat sports. The Atlanta Martial Arts Club BJJ program is Under the Novan Uniao Atlanta Team lead by MMA/UFC veteran and BJJ champion Professor Diego “The Octopus” Sariava and MMA veteran Professor DJ Wegesin.
