Yaw-Yan is a more traditional Martial Art along side with the Classic Kali. This is designed to KILL. Just like using weapons, Yaw-Yan Trains the body to be the Weapon. I Was trained by a Guro(Teacher/Master) from Tarlac mostly for self defense using Kali. But I researched my way to learning the art. There are too many styles and focus when you’re talking about FMA, but Filipinos define it as Aralin ng Digmaan(Art Of War).

As training goes deeper, I started Learning the main goal of the art, breed highly trained people who will kill for the good of the country.

People who knows the art are the most humble among the community. They promote peace but will do crush you if you stir violence and crime. This way is still in existence today. There are countless elite assassins here trained by the ones who learned the art.

Today, I stopped challenging people from any gym/community I get my attention to.
We call this hunting. We look for really good people and challenge them on a no-rule-match.
If the fight gets so far intense, injury is inescapable.
Ranking is defined mainly by the people you beat. The more masters you earn respect with or defeat, the more confident you become. Masters are determined not by any ranking. They are identified by their skill of the art which only comes out in a fight.

I had a lot of fight with other disciplines but Yaw-Yan fighters don’t usually fight. But if they do, you’re a dead kid.

Yaw-Yan walks in the very same path as the Original(Traditional) Kali.
Sayaw ng Kamatayan designed very strong kicking techniques.
Reason:
>Hand usually carries weapons initially, you need to be very skillful in kicking to be more
deadly.
>Boxing is a familiar Filipino art in the streets. By default, commoners are good fighters. We fight our way everyday to avoid being hurt by bullies from school to markets and everywhere.

Techniques are being designed according to your body abilities and comfort zones and develops it so well that you can do it anytime. The more creative you are, the more techniques you can develop. NO BARS WHEN IT COMES TO FIGHTING TECHNIQES.

Yaw-Yan is simple. Be a deadly man to your foes an enemy of your motherland, and a good member of the community.
