Your martial arts collection is not
complete without MTB fights from Arts of Ancient Wisdom!
MTB warriors use all kinds of
bone-breaking strikes, dashing, flying attacks, clinching techniques,
and unique slam down methods not present in other martial arts
systemsâ€”not even Muay Thai. Myanmar Traditional Boxing is most similar
to Muay Thai, but there are huge differences in techniques, mentality,
and principles. MTB is more realistic and better. Thai business
industries have been falsely but successfully promoting their Muay Thai
competitions as if they were big deals before the 1990s. The truth came
out to the world afterward. Thai warriors have been on an endless losing
streak to Myanmar warriors in these publicly documented martial arts
Letwhayte (MTB) Strikes
MTB warriors are unique with their natural body weapons, such as fists,
shins, head, elbows, knees, insteps, heels, and forearms. All these body
parts of the warrior are lethally hardened like metal hammers. When they
strike, they strike to break bones.
Unique Letwhayte Dashing and Flying Attacks
MTB competitions are the only martial arts competition packed with
non-stop high-energy movements. These unique movements along with MTB
strikes make MTB what it isâ€”the best and most realistic martial arts
system in present.
Technical MTB Clinches
MTB warriors use unknown clinching methods and principles that are not
known in todayâ€™s Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) world.
MTB warriors use unique spectacular slam downs only present in MTB
competitions in the world.
