Caniga Jr., a councilman in Barangay Day-as, Cebu City, is widely known for his vaunted Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) team and promotions in Cebu.He recently admitted that his gym in Sanciangko st. is struggling due to the pandemic. He was forced to close his gym for nearly a year due to the health and safety restrictions that prohibited everyone to go out in public.
Until recently, Caniga re-opened his gym to accept students who want to learn MMA, but not that many enrolled compared to before the pandemic happened.Despite this setback, Caniga decided to continue with his passion. This time, he holds a weekly martial arts clinic as part of Barangay Day-as’ summer sports program that kicked off last July 24 at the Day-as gymnasium along Imus Road, this city. headtopics.com

Gusto namo makat-on pud sila ug self discipline, respect, ug pinaka importante ang self defense,” said Caniga.
Caniga was grateful that their free martial arts clinic gathered a lot of participants ages seven years old and above who eagerly listened and practiced the different techniques of kick boxing, Muay Thai, and self-defense.The free martial arts clinic is held every Saturday at 3 to 5PM at the Day-as sports complex along Imus Road, this City.
He also stated that their free martial arts clinic is also open for everyone from other barangays.“Kung kinsa to nga taga lain nga barangay welcome mo maka join sa among training program. Welcome kaayo mo diri sa Barangay Day-as. Mao ni among tinguha diri sa among barangay nga malikay among kabatan-onan sa gidiling drogas ug uban nga bisyo,” added Caniga Jr.
