Grandmaster Bobby Taboada

Bobby Taboada was introduced to the Balintawak school founded by the Great Grandmaster Venancio “Anciong” Bacon and headed at the time by Grandmasters Teofilo Velez and Jose Villasin. Grandmaster Taboada was trained in the “old school” ways of stick fighting. Grandmaster Bobby Taboada was raised in Cebu City, Philippines, the birthplace of Balintawak and a thriving martial arts culture. After studying karate and boxing and other fighting arts, Grandmaster Taboada was introduced to the Balintawak school founded by the Great Grandmaster Venancio “Anciong” Bacon and headed at the time by Grandmasters Teofilo Velez and Jose Villasin. Grandmaster Taboada was trained in the “old school” ways of stick fighting, enduring physical abuse and constant live stick training with the masters. The combination of extremely rigorous physical training, expert instruction, and guidance from masters Bacon, Velez and Villasin helped shape and produce a dynamic and highly skilled martial arts master and teacher. In 1979, Grandmaster Taboada left the Philippines and brought his art to New Zealand and Australia before being persuaded to introduce Balintawak to a US audience. In 1991, Grandmaster Taboada relocated to the United States and settled in Charlotte, North Carolina. Grandmaster Taboada, or “Bobby”, as most of his friends and students know him, still teaches at the headquarters for his Balintawak International organization, in Charlotte, NC. Since his arrival in the U.S., he’s been a self-defense instructor for the North Carolina Justice Academy and he has assisted in crime prevention programs sponsored by the North Carolina Sheriff’s Academy, and been featured in dozens of articles and magazines. Grandmaster Taboada has trained martial arts experts and practitioners all through the US and around the world, in countries such as England, Australia, Germany, and Canada. He has produced a dedicated handful of Qualified Instructors, authorized to teach his Balintawak curriculum that is scattered throughout the world as well. Always a welcome instructor at martial arts seminars, Grandmaster Taboada continues to amaze and teach students that are willing and have a desire to learn. In the year 2000, he was inducted into the World Head Council of Family Sokiship’s International Hall of Fame and was awarded the title of Millenium Grandmaster. In 2002, that same organization honored him with the title of Distinguished Grandmaster. He is well known throughout martial arts circles as a highly respected master, a great teacher, and a superb human being that has remained humble and welcoming to all he comes in contact with.

More about WOTBAG
Teovel’s Balintawak Arnis was renowned by our late Great Grandmaster “Teofilo Velez”. He was the one who started propagating art of balintawak arnis, GM Teofilo Velez & Late GM Atty. Villasen they are the one who initiate to modify on how to teach Balintawak arnis in easiest way for students.The Velez Brothers (Chito, Eddie, Monnie) are known to be his successors and the first ever instructors of GM Teofilo Velez are his sons: Pacito “Chito” Velez, Ramon Franco “Monnie” Velez, and Eduardo “Eddie” Velez Sr.

When Late GM Teofilo Velez passed away because of cancer, Mr. Chito Velez was chosen by the members to be the New Grand Master of Teovel’s Balintawak Arnis. Few years after, the Velez Brothers continued teaching the Balintawak style of arnis. GrandMaster Monnie Velez teaches arnis at his home in Englis,Guadalupe Cebu and later at Ayala Park while GrandMaster Eddie Velez teaches arnis at one of our Headquarters in Guadalupe, Cebu. By the year 2007, the Velez Brothers regrouped. GrandMaster Monnie Velez and his students came up with the name of WOTBAG which stands for “World Original Teovel’s Balintawak Arnis Group”. With the help of Master Oliver Mag-uyon, they were able to register the group to the Secretary of Exchange Commission in order for it to be legalized and they were also able to elect new sets of officers.

Now the The Three Pillar’s( Velez Brothers ) introduced a new method of teaching, focusing on the students’ performance on flexibility, timing, speed, hitting points, defense and offense,knife fighting. They were also able to share their tactical skills by using all the knowledge they have learned during their training with their late father, Great Grandmaster Teofilo Velez which he also learned from his late mentor, Great Grandmaster Anciong Bacon, who introduced the Balintawak Style.Now we have our WOTBAG and IPMAF Balintawak Eskrima Poland Association by cooperation of Agreement by their Chairman GM Dr. Andreas Boruta as official representative of WOTBAG in Europe will help on developing and propagating WOTBAG.

Counterpoint Tactical System Seminar

Contact: Brian Brown 770.837.2234

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.

Details:

Doce Pares (Spanish for twelve pairs) is a form of Arnis, Kali and Eskrima, or a Filipino martial art that focuses primarily on stick fighting, knife fighting and hand-to-hand combat but also covers wrestling and other weapons as well. 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.
