               Bando/Thaing

     This is a Burmese martial art with both armed and unarmed
techniques. It emphasizes an initial withdrawal, followed by an
attack outside the opponent's reach. Once the initial attack is
delivered, grappling and locking techniques are applied. Bando
practitioners use all parts of the body in the delivery of
attacks. The term Bando is translated as either "way of
dicipline","system of defense", or "art of fighting, or combat."
Swords, knives, spears, and sticks are sometimes used, and the
art is similar in many ways to its neighboring martial art Muay
Thai.
