Lito Adiwang

Lito "Thunder Kid" Adiwang is a rising star in ONE Championship, and he is back in action on Friday, January 22, at ONE: Unbreakable.

Adiwang has represented Team Lakay well and quickly become one of the organization's can't-miss athletes with entertaining bouts each time he steps inside the ONE Circle. He is always a threat to finish the bout.

The Filipino will kick-off the show in a strawweight contest against Namiki Kawahara. However, he is competing for more than just a win in Singapore on this occasion.

In a video by ONE, Adiwang dedicated this performance to his late mother, stating that he wants to honor her at ONE: Unbreakable and all throughout his career.

The Team Lakay representative wishes to help others and views his service as a way to respect and honor his mother. Success inside the ONE Circle will only help to elevate his platform and give him that chance.

A blog series analyzing the parallels between Jiu-Jitsu and Mental Health

You don't have to look very hard to find the "surface level" benefits Jiu-Jitsu can have on your mental health.

Emergency Action Plans (EAPs) help speed up your response to emergency situations, reduce injury severity, mitigate damages associated with a catastrophic event, and save lives. An EAP is not an emergency evacuation plan. For assistance in developing an emergency evacuation plan, consult your local fire and police departments for help.

When you create your EAP, assign specific responsibilities to staff members and cross-train key personnel. You can use injuries and emergencies experienced in the martial arts industry to create various scenarios, and practice responding to them. Make sure staff know where emergency equipment is located and how to use it. Post emergency contact numbers prominently by telephones for easy reference.
