The Dave Leduc Experience: Seminars & Retreats
Lethwei or Burmese bareknuckle boxing is considered to be the most brutal and affective striking combat art in the world. Fighters fight bareknuckle with only some tape and gauze on their hands. The use of fists, elbows, knees, feet but more surprisingly, the head makes it a very unusual martial art.
This is the reason it also known as “The Art of 9 limbs”. In traditional Lethwei, there’s no scoring system and only way to win is by knockout. This puts the focus on defense, pain threshold and inflicting maximum damage, not scoring points, which is a great mentality for every martial artist to acquire.
2019 Lethwei World tour had 14 countries, 24 cities, with more than a two thousand people training Myanmar Lethwei. Contact us if you would like to be a part of the next tours.

Seminars will be a introduction to the brutal world of Lethwei by Dave Leduc and go through the unique fighting mentality required for Bareknuckle Boxing. Dave will learn you his favorite technique, takedowns & throws from Sanda clinching and techniques for Lethwei & Muay Thai , the best ways to create openings & score a KO, sparring drills, neck & hand strengthening exercises to built a thick neck and get a strong jaw.
And of course, least but not least, how the use of headbutts totally change the game of the clinch and close combat.
All students attending the seminars will gain access to the Leduc Lethwei online academy with webinars, e-books and video guides on Lethwei. The academy plans to go online in Q1 2020 and all seminar participants will receive a seminar pack to reinforce their learning.
What are people saying about past seminars?
We hosted The Dave Leduc Experience and it was the most successful seminar we ever had! Dave is so passionate about Lethwei and is a true Master of his art even at a young age. He was so engaging with all the participants and made sure everyone got equal attention. I highly recommend hosting one of his seminar and I can’t wait to have him back at my academy.
I had the chance to attend several martial arts seminars with world champions and UFC fighters and the Dave Leduc Experience at my academy was my favorite. Dave is a true martial artist and has an incredible energy. He is so passionate and he cares about all the small details. He generously teaches his techniques that he effectively used during his fights.
I wanted to have Dave at my academy for a seminar after seeing him winning the Lethwei World title. When I picked up Dave at the airport the first day I knew I had made the right choice. Not only is he an absolute animal in the ring, but he’s an amazing teacher who took the time to speak with every student there, whether they were younger, older student or some of the children that attended. He made sure to spend time and create a personal relationship that has lasted. My students continue to ask me when Dave is coming back!
What makes Dave Leduc special is not just his championship level skills and technique but his unmatched energy and passion. He brought this passion to H2O MMA and we look forward to seeing more of this in the future.
