CTS is a weapon based mixed martial art designed
for real world survival. CTS, is a complete weapon-based,
integrated martial art designed for the street with an
emphasis on tactical counter offense.CTS includes elements of
Doce Pares Eskrima, Pekiti Tirsia Kali, Kenpo, Jiu Jitsu,
Silat, and Kung Fu. Not intended as a sport CTS has a survival-based
philosophy that combines the concepts of both fighting and
self-defense to give students the knowledge and skill to be successful
in life threatening situations.
Our end goal is to produce top-quality martial artists
who will be successful against strikers, ground
fighters, multiple opponents and weapons.

Filipino Boxing,and Stand Up Grappling per CTS curriculum.
