Yaw-Yan also called Sayaw ng Kamatayan or "Dance of Death" is a Filipino style of Kickboxing developed by Napoleon A. Fernandez. Since its inception in the 1970s, it has
dominated the kickboxing scene in the Philippines and has proven very effective against other stand-up fighting arts.
Yaw-Yan closely resembles Muay Thai, but differs in the hip-torquing motion as well as the downward-cutting nature of its kicks, and the emphasis on delivering attacks from long range
(while Muay Thai focuses more on clinching).
