We are not your ordinary Martial Arts School where young instructors with less than a decade experience teach your class…


We are not your ordinary Kickboxing School with so-called Health Club Certified Kickboxing Instructors or Karate Instructors who never even have the know-how and technical skills of the real art of Kickboxing


We teach real-life martial skills and mechanics of actual fighting, not useless kata, forms, or dance… we don’t play with toys and call it drills… we teach real drills on punches, kicks, grappling, self-defense, and weaponries rather than play with toys… you won’t waste time looking good on forms but rather utilize that time on sparring sessions, hitting the bags and pads, combination drills, perfecting techniques, and making sure you always come out as the victor…


Gain an unfair advantage… Learn proven and effective techniques…


Superior Martial Arts! Yaw-Yan has been around since 1972 and is widely known as the Philippines’ Deadliest Martial Arts!  Yaw-Yan has been proven very effective time and time again, out on the streets and in countless Full Contact matches…


Life Changing Martial Arts Classes for a More Focused, Confident Life!


All our Classes are Taught or Overseen by Master Armando Liban, with more than 40 years of Martial Arts Experience!!!



About Our Programs…

Yaw-Yan Little Warriors – Our Little Warriors class for ages 4-6 focuses on developing self-control and a positive attitude while teaching the basic techniques of the Martial Arts of Philippine Yaw-Yan Fervilleon. Self-defense training & drills are an important part of this class, with a focus on “Stranger Danger” and general child safety skills. Kids love it!

Yaw-Yan Fervilleon Martial Arts for Ages 7-12 – The martial arts classes for ages 7-12 are geared toward providing a fun and challenging martial arts curriculum while instilling the positive, life-changing benefits of the Philippine Martial Arts Traditions: respect for others, self-confidence, courtesy, obedience, humility, perseverance, honesty, integrity, and self-control. This class emphasizes goal-setting and positive reinforcement of personal success habits through sparring, competitions and rank promotion system. Tons of fun!

Yaw-Yan Fervilleon Martial Arts for Teens & Adults – Our Teens and Adults’ martial arts program teaches the Philippine Martial Arts of Yaw-Yan (meaning “Dance of Death”) and its latest & most effective improvement called Yaw-Yan Fervilleon also known as Estocada de Brazo Y Pie. This program will open up a whole new world of Martial Arts training – you will be introduced on how to manipulate a knife, a stick, a rolled-up magazine… and then, utilizing the very same movements of the blade your empty-hand training begins. Yaw-Yan effectiveness has been proven in Full-Contact tournaments time and time again, with Yaw-Yan Fervilleon you’ll be taken several steps forward to give you that winning edge not only on the ring but also to protect yourself out on the street. In addition, our chief instructor draws upon his extensive knowledge of other martial arts traditions to teach practical and effective self-defense techniques. Physical fitness and stress reduction are just some of the positive benefits gained from training in this class.

Fervilleon Sandatas (Weaponries) – Traditionally, Philippine Martial Arts have been known to be weapons-based system employing the blades or the sticks. Learn the Philippine indigenous art of Arnis/Kali/Eskrima using the effective Fervilleon Uno-Terro Estocada System of GrandMaster Napoleon Fernandez in a very safe environment utilizing sticks and/or dull training blades.

Fervilleon Practical Self-Protection – Choose not to be a victim!  We teach you how to become the victor by preparing yourself to fight back!  Develop a winning mindset and gain an unfair advantage! No nonsense class!  Learn effective Yaw-Yan self-defense moves against bigger and stronger opponent!

Fervilleon Fitness Kick Boxing – A fun and practical alternative to your gym, aerobics class, or exercise video!
