Additional information on Kali, Arnis, Eskrima, Escrima from Wikipedia.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eskrima

Eskrima, Escrima, Arnis, and Kali are umbrella terms for the traditional martial arts of the Philippines (“Filipino Martial Arts,” or FMA) that emphasize weapon-based fighting with sticks, knives and other bladed weapons, and various improvised weapons. It is also known as Estoque (Spanish for rapier), Estocada (Spanish for thrust or stab) and Garrote (Spanish for club). In Luzon they may go by the name of Arnis de Mano, Pananandata (use of weapons), Sinawali (Pampanga, “to weave”), Sitbatan (Pangasinan), Didya and Kabaroan (Ilocos region). In the Visayas and Mindanao, these martial arts have been referred to as eskrima, kali, kaliradman, pagaradman and kalirongan. kuntaw and silat are separate martial arts practiced in the islands.

It also includes hand-to-hand combat, joint locks, grappling and weapon disarming techniques. Although in general, emphasis is put on weapons for these arts, some systems put empty hands as the primary focus and some old school systems do not teach weapons at all.

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 violence and how to appropriately respond to a very dangerous situation.
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.

Zach Whitson – Counterpoint Tactical Systems seminar

The Counterpoint Tactical System is designed as a modern, real world survival based martial art. The CTS curriculum does not focus on sport competition or one dimensional self-defense techniques. We only teach and practice techniques and tactics that are proven to work against a skilled and experienced enemy.

Our primary goal is to teach and develop our student’s skill sets with the most real and effective martial arts training available today. We want to help you develop a healthy life, and to teach you how to protect yourself and your loved ones while providing a safe practice and training environment.

CTS uses an open motor training model to develop life saving skills and habits. As trainers, we live in the world of simple, direct and effective tactics, avoiding all action that has a low probability of success. We also offer a children’s curriculum designed to be fun and effective in teaching young students to be respectful of others and capable of protecting themselves from unwanted aggression.

Currently, many martial arts instructors believe that they must water down their training to make it palatable to the students of today’s fast food culture. We have not gone this route. We use training models that are fun and comprehensive making accelerated learning a reality. As students find success in application, their confidence grows, they practice more often and their tactical survival skills improve exponentially.

In reality, the stick is merely considered an extension of the hand, and is meant to represent almost any weapon, from sticks to swords to knives to anything else you can place in your hand and use as a weapon in the modern context. Doce Pares was founded in 1932.

In 1993, he moved to the Philippines where he lived and studied privately with Grand Tuhon Gaje for the next 5 years. Living in Bacolod City and Manila, Tim was trained in the same system that Grand Tuhon Gaje was trained by his Grandfather, Grand Tuhon Conrado B. Tortal. He now trains instructors and students in the complete Pekiti-Tirsia system, teaching the traditional, authentic, and effective training methods of the Combat Blade Fighting system of Pekiti-Tirsia Kali.

In 1998, Tim developed the official Close-Quarters-Combat system for the Philippine Marine Corps (PMC) Force Reconnaissance Battalion and conducted a six-month Instructor Qualification Course graduating 40 Certified Instructors. In 2000, this system was adopted as the official Combatives and Martial Art System for the entire Philippine Marine Corps, and was later adopted by Special Operations Units of the Philippine Army and other units of the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP). These programs developed and conducted by Tuhon Tim Waid marked the return of authentic Filipino Martial Arts to Philippine military doctrine and training since World War II.

Tim also served with distinction in the U.S. Marine Corps as an Infantry Platoon Sergeant, and as an Intelligence Sergeant in the U.S. Army National Guard.
