Harimaw Buno

Buno is a Tagalog word meaning wrestling it is an empty hand fighting system developed by the indigenous people of the Philippines Islands. There are literally hundreds of styles of Buno practiced throughout the Philippines. However, the Harimaw Buno formerly Harimaw Lumad (King Tiger Wrestling) style was particular to the Mangyans, of Mindoro, Island and Aetas Tribes in Infanta, Quezon in Luzon Philippines. Harimaw Buno was the Preferred name by Gat Puno Abon "Garimot" Baet the founder and Grandmaster of the Harimaw Buno Federation.

Buno promotes the principle that a smaller, weaker person using leverage and proper technique can successfully defend against a bigger, stronger assailant. Unusual training methods and emphasis on ancinent battle-proven techniques make the Buno master more than a formidable opponent.

Characterists of Harimaw Buno include limb locks, joint locs, choke holds, head chranks, precision striking, muscule rabs, minor/major pressure point tactics and "biyabit" techniques (come-along maneuvers). Sparring and live drilling play a major role in training, and a premium is placed on performance.

The Buno practice is an integral part of Temple Arts MMA curriculum.
