Sunday, March 17, 2013
WITH summer just peeking around the corner, Yaw-Yan Ardigma is offering an alternative way to spend time during the annual school break.
The famed Filipino martial arts is opening up yet another Summer Clinic at the Yaw-Yan Gym at the fourth floor of the Coast Pacific Downtown Center in front of University of Cebu Main Campus at Sanciangko Street, Cebu City.
The yearly clinic opens on April 1 and offers lessons in arnis, boxing fitness, Yaw-Yan combat (self defense), Yaw-Yan Ardigma system and mixed martial arts (MMA).
Yaw-Yan, which comes from the words “Sayaw ng Kamatayan” or “Dance of Death”, was started by founder GM Napoleon “Nap” Fernandez in 1972.
Yaw-Yan is a complete martial art that utilizes the body as a weapon. Students will be taught on how to defend themselves with punches, kicks, head and shoulder butts, elbows, knees, takedowns and ground fighting techniques.
Yaw-Yan Ardigma encourages the youth to join the annual summer camp to promote physical fitness and boost self-confidence in the art and discipline of MMA instead of wasting their time on unproductive activities this coming summer.
