Hi Sidney. Great Ifugao/Mayoyao series! Thanks for featuring the highlanders. Seeing this made me a prouder IGOROTA! My fave - the boy and the bogger, hahaha.

Interesting activity, i wonder if it could be recognized as a martial art, a homegrown one.

Thank you for this great blog information!I'm finding this whole blogging world a great resource for any topic, and really inspirational.


actually this looks interesting - should be on TV


Are they having a sit-ups competitions?


wooo.. it's a weird kind of wrestling ! Interesting.


Oops, some sportive fighting now.
I prefered the dancing.


I've never seen these native games except the "bunong braso" or arm wrestling


lovely pictures. hmm, looks like the rule is 'no hands allowed'. I'm an Igorot from another province, but I havent known of this practice by the Ifugaos. Very intriguing though.


jolies scènes de reportage.


just got back from ifugao too but mayaoyao is too far from kiangan.



the colors are just excellent in this sport shots! well done!

hahaha... the game looks funny. i wonder if they actually played those games during the old days. i hope that man didn't lose his tooth in a fight.

one of them actually looks like manny.


I hope the guy didn't lose his tooth when wrestling!


These games look like fun to watch ... one can tell by the look of all those spectators! lol Wish I was there to watch the whole thing and see who won! ;)
Great shots Sidney!


Avec un règlement contraignant certes, mais dans la joie également !


Impressionnant ce sport de combat. Beaucoup de succès.

I'm not sure about the kind of games they're doing. Looks very traditional really.
