Bando a self-defense martial art from Burma. The earliest meanings of Bando were "self-discipline, self-development, and self-improvement". Later, it came to mean, "self-protection, or self-defense". Bando includes the empty-hands methods and animal forms: eagle, bull, cobra, panther, monkey, and boar. There are a number of schools and styles. The main branches are: - Nan twin thaing (Royal Palace style) - Pyompya thaing (School of the "hard-soft way") - Neganadai thaing (Snake style) - Shan thaing, a martial art influenced by Chinese styles (Shan province is close to the Chinese border).

The system was brought to America in the late 1950's by Maung Gyi (now Dr. U M. Gyi, Grandmaster.) It is practiced by a small group of dedicated students and teachers here in the U.S. under the auspices of the non-profit American Bando Association.
