Welcome to a unique of Martial Art Retreat, the brutal & exciting world of Lethwei combined with a Relaxing Holiday & Vacation.
Lethwei or Burmese Barenuckle Boxing is the traditional combat art of Myanmar. Lethwei is a full contact sport considered the most brutal & effective stand up fighting art in the world, because fighter compete without gloves and use the entire body as a weapon. The use of fists, elbows, knees, and feet, and the head makes it a very unique martial art. Although disallowed in most combat sports, in Lethwei, the use of headbutt is encouraged. This is the reason it is also known as “The Art of 9 Limbs.”
Once shadowed by other combat sports, the ancient art of Lethwei is now enjoying a healthy revival mainly because of its ambassador and current undefeated Lethwei World Champion, Dave Leduc and him funding Leduc Lethwei as a mean of spreading the sport around the world through his Lethwei Seminars & World Tours. Additionally, with its fame comes a proportional rise in interest in the culture of Myanmar itself.
Following his first title win back in 2016, Leduc said in an interview, ″I have so much vision for this sport. The more people learn about Lethwei, the more people will visit Myanmar and train its traditional art, which will help the economy.”
Dave Leduc, is a Canadian Lethwei fighter who competes in the World Lethwei Championship. He is the current openweight Lethwei World Champion and current WLC Cruiserweight Champion.
