Been training and competed in Muay Thai for 7 years now and have recently become interested in Lethwei. I have struggled to find to find any form of Lethwei gym outside of Myanmar and imo the situation over there does no seem ideal for foreigners atm. Does anybody have any pointers on ways to get into training Lethwei? or ideally gyms that could help me get a fight eventually?
Nobody here has ever trained lethwei and the people praise it are larpers
It's literally Muay Thai with headbutts
youre only options like you said are either actually going to Myanmar (not practical) or finding someone (likely at a muay thai gym) who did go to myanmar and learn it to pass it on to you, but realistically
just learn how to add headbutts in the clinch and practive your bag work bare knuckle
Dave Leduc gets shit on a lot but his youtube channel has pretty good techniques instructional videos
Why? It's washed, third rate nak muays beating on cans.
in my opinion you have better chance finding muay boran trainer rather than lethwei if you dont want to move to Myanmar
ahh man i can't stand dave leduc but yeah, maybe he is my best option
seems fun and i am a third rate nak muay
i guess but im more so interested in competing, i've had 1 kard chuek fight which is probably the closest you could get with muay thai, ive heard bad things about muay boran if im being honest but ill give it a lookk
>he is my best option
He's a failed nak muay who mostly looks good because he beats up Cambodian manlets with poor kickboxing fundamentals.

some moves in muay boran aren't really effective in real combat and most of the times you won't get any real muay boran sparring, mostly just muay thai with some additional rules. But this is also specific to who teaches you and where do you learn
good luck finding lethwei outside of Myanmar, just stick with muay thai
You must have a lot of issues to really wanted to fight without gloves and with headbutts constantly, all of the fighters are desperate to not starve, you can't sell that in other context.
is it correct to say that muay boran is muay thai+some blocks and grapples (like palankutan?) and its taught to the military, while NOT being "secret killing art"?
stick with muay thai
Train Judo. Any Muay Thai fighter is just going to get dumped on their head the second a judoka gets their hands on them, rendering Muay Thai useless.

more like muay thai is modernized muay boran, with boxing gloves and without some grapples + blocks. And no, it isn't secret killing art
Stop shilling one martial art you moron. I've seen you in like ten threads this week. Judoka wouldn't get their hands on a Muay Thai fighter if their legs got kicked out from under them.
