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.

Bruce Lee really did have the Midas touch when it came to training. Most people think Bruce was advanced and complicated, but he was the master of simplicity. He was not worried about doing the jump-up flip spin-around back kick. Not sure if there is one. But by the time you land, Bruce would just throw a simple kick or punch to knock you down as you landed to the ground. However, that is the point. Simplicity is often overlooked because of the coolness and the latest and greatest workout when simplicity produces the most significant effect. Super complicated does not mean superior.
