Well I am not shure how to explain what Bando is.
First to say that thaing could be translated in few ways, but main point is same, translation can be same sa Wushu or we can translate is as martial arts.
Burma have influence in martial arts from India and China at begining, later (IIWW) there was influrnce of Japan too, so influence of all these techniques that they learned we can finde in Bando. From unurmed parts there are Lethwei or Burmese Boxing and Naban or Burmese wrestling. In Bando they use weapons such as sword, staff, spear…
To image what is Bando you may look at Five Animals Kung Fu. Bando have animal formas such as Boar, Bull, Cobra, Deer, Eagle, Monkey, Panther, Scorpion, Tiger and Viper.
Many people thinks that Bando techniques are taken from Kung Fu, so that Bando is some mix of Kung Fu techniques, well thats not truth. Techniques were taken, but during the centuryes they were developed in diferent way that Kung Fu techniques, so today they are totaly diferent. You may see influnce of Kung Fu in preforming forms and meditative aproach.
