Name: Yaw Yan ArDigma
To those who have bothered to notice, one name has practically been a constant in local and national mixed-martial-arts tournaments: Yaw-Yan, short for Sayaw ng Kamatayan or Dance of Death. Yaw-Yan came into prominence in the Philippines in the 1970s when its fighters mowed down the opposition in kickboxing tournaments. To the casual observer, Yaw-Yan might appear just another method of kickboxing akin to Muay Thai, the perception reinforced by the concentration on kicking techniques (70-30 ratio of kicking and punching) and the muay-Thai type of shorts worn by Yaw-Yan stylists, mainly for comfort not fashion. It is interesting to know that Yaw-Yan delegations have competed in international Muay Thai tournaments, like in the recent 3rd World Muay Thai Championship in Bangkok, giving as good as they got.

Name: Yaw Yan Buhawi
Yaw-Yan has gyms all over the country and even one in Canada. For every gym, a sub-title is attached to every Yaw-Yan name not only to distinguish one from the other, but also adds meaning to the corresponding sub-team's name as defined by their fighting styles. "BUHAWI" is attached to our Yaw-Yan due to our fighters ability to spin like a "Buhawi" ( Tornado ) in applying their combat skills and techniques through a spinning combination of kicks and punches. To be competitive enough in today's fastest growing sport, Mixed Martial Arts, Yaw-Yan Buhawi is also equipped with the knowledge of Submission Grappling. With the team's quick and continuous movement capable of destroying one's opponent, we deserve to be called YAW-YAN BUHAWI.
