Gloveless fights: no boxing gloves, but hand wrapping (optional).

knees, kicks and slams.
No striking while the opponent is down
One three-minutes break allowed during the fight

MTB 3: Father! Your Good Son is Always Victorious
(MTB Champion in 2004--2010)
Saw Kya Lay
out in 30 sec and Win Tun takes 3min break.
4th knock down, no more up.
Winner Saw Kya Lay.
This fight captures Win Tun in his earlier days in
MTB ring. No one thinks he would be a Champion #1 in 2004. He doesn't choose the
opponent and care about risk on his life. His determination and courage make him
a very important MTB Champion and an icon (2004--2012). His opponents are just
highly skilled and tricky opponents that beat Win Tun by slight edge of
difference in experience and wits.
Since a draw in a Main event with a phenomenon MTB warrior Thu Rya Year Aung in
MTB 6, Win Tun (the underdog) doesn't lose anymore. They name MTB 14 event in
his honor "HE WILL INVEST COURAGE AND COMPETE". That is all you need to compete
in MTB events. MTB warriors are true self-made Champions unlike western MMA
champions (like UFC) who have to rely heavily on promotion. MMA events like UFC
and others in western world make many highly skilled true martial artists
impossible to participate with unnecessary regulatory rules, heavy financial

Saw Wan Chine
( MTB Champion 2003--2005)
Win Nine Tun
Wan Chine has another challenger once
again, who climbs up quickly to top. This opponent is bigger, stronger, and
looks meaner with a lot of spiritual (charm) tattoos.
Wan Chine actually goes down three times in applying relentless Bull Rushes,
but jumps back up each time. They both start with fury from the beginning to the
Wan Chine sets up this opponent's leaning tendency and make his pay with big
kick in the back of the head.
Both is hurt badly right from the first
round and fighting with will power. Neither of them show any fear or respect to
each other at all.
It will take your breadth away.
Win Nei Tun goes down punching, not knowing what he is punching and never gets
up again. He is fighting with tremendous concussions from previous hits on his
head and they kick in like late effect. Shocking!!
Wan Chine is literally spitting blood when he celebrates his victory. This is
the fight where he is injured most in his career.
This event is named referring to Saw Wan Chine in honor
by Myanmar Letwhayte fans:
Father! Your Good Son is Always Victorious.

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.
