MuayThai and Yaw-Yan- The Difference




When asked re the difference between Yaw-Yan and MuayThai, here's what I have to say...
Take it from someone who studied and served under both styles...I served as Club Director for Yaw-Yan Cubao in 1988-90...and Im currently part of the Philippine MuayThai National Training Center in ULTRA.




They may look similar but the principles are most certainly different.
First of all...for the record...NO SINGLE STYLE IS SUPERIOR!!!
I learned a lot from MuayThai which I never learned from Yaw-Yan and learned a lot from Yaw-Yan which MuayThai does not offer...
A Yaw-Yan fighter will defeat a MuayThai fighter using his powerful unorthodox kicks...
A MuayThai fighter will defeat a Yaw-Yan because MuayThai in my own oppinion is more scientific...




You won't believe how Yaw-Yans train...the emphasis is on Power and flexibility using the Yaw-Yan Baton Bag and thats an edge for Yaw-Yan...
But I have to give it to MuayThai for its scientific way of training a fighter.
Don't be confused with the uniforms...Wu Shu fighters also wear shorts but WuShu is not MuayThai... Yaw-Yan was not copied from MuayThai...as many people mistakenly claim...
The strikes are different...training method is different...kicks are diffrent...and the principles are different...Yaw-Yan incorporates Arnis strikes in its arsenals...Bolo Punches as we call it...
I guess the basic difference is PRINCIPLES...






EASILY PUT: Pinoys are lucky to have Yaw-Yan...and the world is lucky to have MuayThai...but will be more lucky if the World discovers Yaw-Yan
