Lethwei is bare knuckle Burmese boxing.

It is what Muay Thai looked like 100 years ago.

Matt, I have a bunch of Burmese boxing VCDs. Absurdly brutal KOs, and the setting looks like a bad Cinemax "forced to be a prison cagefighter" movie.

Tom, do you know Phil Dunlap? http://www.thaing.net

He lives in NJ teaches Kachin style boxing from Burma. He often has fighters on the same shows as my team, though we have never had fighters fight each other.

Ajarn Bumrung (Danny) fought in Bare-knuckle fights on the Thai/Laos/Khmer border towns when he wss a kid.

lol, Danny is all about Crossfit "torture" for the fighters now. Funny how a 57 year old former Lumpinee champ can see the benefit of crossfit for fighters...

I have 100's of fight vcds, we need to compare collections sometime!
