Burmese Striking sport of Thaing

Post by Nycto Da 6'0 on Sun Oct 23, 2011 2:39 pm

For those of you who don't know, Burma is the country next to Thailand. I work with a guy from there and he was telling me they had this crazy martial art there, better than Muay Thai. Anyway, when Britain took over there, they banned them from learning it, so they turned it into a dance in the mean time. Its basically no holds barred stand up striking, but not UFC 1 style... badass back yard thai boxing with no rules or gloves. To win a fight, you have to knock the guy OUT 3 times, with a minute to recover from every knockout.

Anyway, the guy told me to check it out, so I did, and now I'm sharing with you guys.

Lethwei is badass as fuck. These guys would get the shit kicked out of them by MT fighters though.

Yeah like I said, the British put an end to it, and it took a long hiatus as a dance until they left... so it clearly got somewhat lost in terms of actual combat. It's basically Muay Thai with headbutts and groin shots though lol, and 3 knockouts.

its good, but there is no control, they basically just swing for the fences and abandon all technique, they get their asses kicked by thai boxers
