Hi

Most of the Filippino empty hands from the direct translation of weapon movements.In the southern part of philippines(Mindanao) there are some silat styles ,which teaches the empty hands first.

Yaw-Yan is very famous in Philippines.Although it's commonly known as a kickboxing system ,there is a combat version of that art too.They define their art as arnis without sticks.They are heavily conditioned and contains a lot of unorthodox punches and kicks.If you want more information ,plz check these out

Also look for 'Dumpag' the unarmed version of Pekiti Tirsia Kali ,which is based on striking ,combat grappling and ground fighting.

Thanks
