Bando is one of a range of Burmese martial arts that fall under the umbrella term Thaing. Prior to World War II, there were nine regional Bando styles. After WWII, most of these merged into ABA Bando, which is now common worldwide. This style appears below, along with the rarer Kachin Bando.

Bando is famous for its many animal forms, each of which represents an aspect of the style. Only the master's family learns the full style. This helps keep the style "pure" and prevents outsiders from learning all of the master's tricks.

All Bando styles practice physical toughening techniques such as striking tree trunks, heavy bags, or other hard objects. Physical fitness is emphasized - as is heedlessness of death.
