Fight for Myanmar is a result of meeting Phoe Thaw and coaches and members of the White Blood New Generation Lethwei (Traditional Myanmar Boxing, A Phyu Yaun Thwe Thit) Club in Yangon.  Phoe Thaw is an MMA fighter representing Myanmar in ONE Championship and is a leader in the growing MMA scene in Myanmar.

He and these fighters truly represent that Gentle Strength Wins and are working to accomplish their goals using martial arts. Fight for Myanmar has been able to donate basic equipment to the White Blood New Generation Club and the Bagan Lethwei Club.  More MMA training is needed to help propel these guys onto the international MMA scene.  With your help we can send MMA coaches to Myanmar and send some of the next generation to Cambodia for training.

Fight for Myanmar is a growing idea inspired by these guys who are training with all their heart and soul and not much else.  In the photo above you can see a delivery of new equipment purchased in Yangon that will help them train.  Fight for Cambodia invested in Phoe Thaw to visit Selapak and train with CHAN Rothana and the team as well as H/Art Academy jiu jitsu, Lorenzo Lanzafame Fitness for strength and conditioning training.

Fight for Myanmar, as a subset of Fight for Cambodia, intends to invest in the future of these fighters through education.
