    The progessive theories of Dekiti-Tirsia-Siradas and it's technical and strategic offense as defense principles. Makes for the development of the reactions to offense and counter-offense.

    The system is built around the combative applications of various angles of attacks which are answered by one strike or multiple strikes, by using or the adaption of the advanced triangle and circle footwork. This footwork teaches you to angle out of the way and counter strikes with a strike and to recounter the opponent's strikes if their is one..

    The general outline in Contradas is:
    1. Offense b. Counter offense c. Recounter the counter d. Recounter the recounter

    The required ranges that the Contradas develop called ranging system
    a. Close range b. Medium range c. Long range

    Required attributes for training
    a. Guts b. Speed c. Timing d. Power

    Contra-Tirsia-Siradas is the highest method within Dekiti-Tirsia-Siradas. After the progessive learning of the basics. And the updated strategic strategies of the system. You begin the dissemination of the knowledge in the movements. By doing this you can progessively reach the levels of the essential combat elements of contradas, recontras, to recontradas, into the principles of Pasunod, Pasugat, Palipas and counter motions. Using the various drills within Dekiti-Tirsia-Siradas will develop the tactics to move from deflections and counter deflections, to engaging and disengaging of sticks or blades during contact. The concepts of using slashes and counter slashes to thrusts and counter thrusts. To punyo counter punyo. Moving from Long range to medium to close and back out again.

    Seeking to reach zones of safety, from an on coming attack is one of the first principles of DTS. When a sword is used during advanced training it is in the interest of the student to get out of the way of the attack first, while countering the weapon at the sametime and proceed with a follow up strike. There is no standing in front of a opponent and blocking attacks unlike some other arts. Repositioning, pivoting and movement are the major aspects of DTS footwork. In DTS, footwork is the key to effectively applying this art!

    Close-quarter Punta thrusting drill

    Partner A- thrust to angle #5, Partner B circle side steps and does an outside downward sweep and applies an under elbow check of the thrusting hand and moves to counter with a downward punyo to the head of partner A, Partner A steps inside and blocks with an open hand block at partner B's wrist and pulls back to deliver a #5 thrust again. This drill develop's the circuling foot to move off line to block then follow with a counter Punyo strike. After this basic is developed it leads to more advanced applications.

    Some Basic Contradas Drills
    (a) Partner A strikes with a #1 angle strike to your Lt. temple, you use your left hand and outside pass the strike and deliver a backhand slash cut to the forearm. And follow with a #1 angle strike.

    (b) Partner A strikes with a #1 angle strike to your Lt. temple, you use a scissor gunting to under the arm, pull to cut it. And follow with a #1 angle strike

    (c) Punyo (close quarter) Partner A strikes with a #1 angle punyo strike to your Lt.temple, you meet it with a #1 angle, and pass it to deliver a #2 angle follow up and then follow with a #1 return

    Contradas using sectors #1-#2
    1. Angle #1 attack-meet the force striking the hand, defense inside #3 sector pass deflection, with a return #2 angle to outside strike to: a. diagonal strike to hand b. horizontal to waist/ribs, b.diagonal to forearm/bicep c. or # 8 Thrust to head, or a #4 uppercut to inside from sector #1

    2. Angle #1 attack- defense from sector #2, meet the force with your own #2 angle and strike the arm. or inside deflect and pass to hit forearm in a diagonal downward, horizontal to waist/ribs, to knee, to uppercut under arm, or wasik to outside and hit inside with an uppercut.
    Two basic grips- Icepick and Hammer

    Beginning Knife

    1. Icepick grip- called Pakal (lit. to rip) 1 set of 12 attacks

    2. Hammer grip- called Sak Sak (lit. to stab-stab) 1 set of 12 attacks

    3. Third hand-(elbows, chop, eye jab, slaps) the strikes between the parries

    4. Nerve hits- intercepting strikes to nerve centers in the weapon arm

    5. Blade reversals- turning the knife against the attacker while they still hold it or disarm

    6. Throws- (always after a disabling strike)

    Targets of the body1. Groin2. Kidney 3. Armpit 4. Carotid artery 5. Nape of the neck
    6. Inside of the eye 7. Heart 8. Femur inside of leg

    This is my research and training of DTS Knife Training coming from GM Nene Total and Guro Jared Wihongi, Guro Ben Fajardo
