Splitting a polygon shapefile into many individual polygons

I have created 5 km buffers around a layer of xy points. I overlapped them with a layer of land use and I used the buffers to clip the land use layer.
I want to extract specific land uses from each buffer area. The ultimate goal is to export the results and use them for statistical analysis. How do I "explode" the clipped land use layer? I am open to any other smarter way of doing it.

Thanks in advance
