Cordillera - Believe it or not, behind the triumph of every champion out there in the world were their coaches who stayed focus, motivated and willing to impart not only their skills but their time to hone the skills of their boxers.

Team Lakay of Cordillera, the most well-known martial arts team in the Philippines has been successful in producing several of the most talented and skilled fighters in the Mixed Martial Arts arena and now making the country shines as the home of the best boxers in the world.

The success of a fighter and a team could not be realized without the coaches who work almost none-stop just to get to the plan done and finish the goal as much as possible in a positive manner.

In a featured article by One Championship, it listed the top 5 coaches in Asian Martial Arts, one of whom Mark Sangiao was listed as number 2.

Here is the excerpt from the article:
" A Filipino martial arts pioneer, Mark Sangiao established Team Lakay many years ago building its home base in the mountains of Baguio City to provide his fellow countrymen with a platform on which to unleash their martial arts greatness.
Along the way, Sangiao has developed martial art superstars who continue to inspire Asia and the world, including former ONE Lightweight World Champion Eduard "Landslide" Folayang, former Featherweight World Champion Honorio "The Rock" Banario, and several world title contenders.
It is mission accomplished for Sangiao, who set out to dominate the Philippine martial arts scene through the art of wushu, and showcase homegrown Filipino talent for all the world to see. Today, Team Lakay is the most well-known martial arts team in the country.
More than just a martial arts coach, however, Sangiao is looked up to as a father figure who genuinely cares for the students under his wing. This has resulted in a bond that extends far beyond the reaches of the cage, and has shaped wonderful human beings who are also true martial artists."
 Among the the top 5 head coaches featured was Fari Salievski who took the number one spot.
Salievski is the head coach of Martin "The Situ-Asian" Nguyen who made a stunning victory in 2017, grabbing two world-title belts in different divisions.

Nguyen shocked the world by defeating Folayang in a well-executed counter punch that led the former champion lying on the canvass.
