Harimaw buno, formerly harimaw lumad (King of Tiger Wrestling), is a style of buno used by the Mangyans of Mindoro and the Aetas of Infanta, Quezon.[2]

Buno usually uses standing throws, control locks, joint manipulation, striking, take-downs and ground wrestling techniques,[3]

There is also an armed style of buno. Weapons that the practitioner can use are knives, spears and bow and arrows. The main weapon used is the lubid or a four-feet long rope.[2]
