    It seems to be expensive to train yaw yan, I called them but decided against it as the cost was way to high.

    the only way for you to know if it is right for you, is try it and see for yourself.

    know yourself first before you pick what art best fits you. If you hate training, YY is not for you.

    as far as i know, i can't afford training in some gyms primarily coz of budget constraints... but luckily ways kept coming for me to try and study. yaw-yan has members ranging from cigarette vendors, pedicab drivers, and self-supporting students to politicians and celebrities.

    so i personally think money is not a problem. if you find it expensive, i could give you installment options, you just need to save two bottle-prices of beer a day. :Angel: i'll just need your commitment. :D

    im one. training in pasay under sir emiliano zapata, sir saladin dacuyan, and sir arnold dacuyan. doing cross training in ardigma-makati when im overloaded with work.

    I guess it depends on how highly you think of yourself.

    That was in Pasay, they asked 5000 per week when i contacted them. To me thats expensive even by western standards.

    5000 a week?!?!?! you didn't call a massage parlor by mistake did you? :rolleyes: i think you were given a wrong price... that price isn't for training... even westerners won't be able to afford that price for FMA training.

    weebear, im thinking you've been misinformed. actually, we have two different training option - private and classes. private, of course, would cost much as in other arts/gym would.

    for discussion's sake, in regular classes, we have two membership packages in pasay (please note that other gyms have their different rates depending on location and target area/students)...

    package #1 is offered basically to tourists and foreigners which is on a monthly basis - this costs 1200 pesos per month. 3 sessions per week, 2 hours per session.

    package #2 is the common choice of almost everyone i know - lifetime membership. last year, in 2005, we priced it at 5500 pesos that comes with an installment option so it is very very affordable to everyone. this package includes unlimited training and gym use for the rest of your life.

    cheap huh????:p

    for this year, 2006, we've modified the training rates and packages to make it more affordable and benificial to everyone. you may check out our blog in my signature below for the updates. same rules apply for the packages.

    i hope this clear things up. :p

    mods - i hope its ok that i posted these details for discussion purposes. thanks!

    :D Actually that is true for evey art out there depending how good one wants to be . To me however ,there isn't a more rigid training system than YY. In the early 90's , amateur fighters were made to throw 40 kicks per round. I'm not talking about kicks like some point system kicking arts but power kicks. While you're trying to get in your minimum kicks, so is your opponent. Question was, who could do more damge in the first rd. That was back in my day though. Don't know what it's like these days.

    these rules are still imposed in some (not all) matches up to this date. whenever i join scheduled sparring matches in the gym.... using these rules, im always expecting to push myself into my gassed-out limits. its really tough and very exhausting... :cry: but, im proud to say that, thru repetitions, it greatly increases my stamina and endurance. :love:
