I am very interested in going to Myanmar to train in the martial art Lethwei'.

However, I can't find much information about gyms online - Only one gym seems to have a website. I would like to ask if anyone knows the locations Gyms in Myanmar and also the average training fees and training hours?

Such a special interest !

Thuwunna Stadium (about 10 min drive from Yangon downtown) is a typical place for several types of Myanmar sports and there is an office of traditional Lethwei association down in the Yangon CBD, the right place to seek a good trainer for you. I think prior request for appointment with the instructor would be necessary. The expert (instructor) will take you to a private gym selected for your training. You can send me a private message if I can be of assistance

Good luck!

There are about 4 letwei clubs in and around Yangon. But none of them can explain you in English except Thu Ti Boxing school, the one you saw on the net.

As far as I know it is arranged by vice chairman of Myanmar Traditional Boxing Federation and trained by Lone Chaw, former champion. They charged 5,000 Kyats/ hr.
