Welcome to a unique of Martial Art Retreat, enter the exciting world of Grappling & Lethwei Kickboxing combined with a Relaxing Holiday Vacation.
MEET YOUR INSTRUCTORS
Dave Leduc is the currently undefeated 6-times Openweight Lethwei World Champion and current WLC Cruiserweight Champion.
Lethwei or Burmese Barenuckle Boxing is the traditional combat art of Myanmar. Lethwei is a full-contact sport considered the most brutal & effective stand-up fighting art in the world because fighters compete without gloves and use their entire body as a weapon.
The use of fists, elbows, knees, and feet, and the head makes it a very unique martial art. Although disallowed in most combat sports, in Lethwei, the use of headbutt is encouraged, giving it the name of “The Art of 9 Limbs.”
Once shadowed by other combat sports, the ancient art of Lethwei is now experiencing a revival because of its ambassador and current Lethwei World Champion, Dave Leduc, and him founding Leduc Lethwei as a means of spreading the sport around the world through his Seminars & World Tours.
MMA Grappling & BJJ
Ertan Balaban, is a 2nd Brazilian Black Belt under Atos JiuJitsu. He is the very first MMA fighter to come out of Turkey and competed in Danger Zone, WFC, and Glory.
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a martial art based on ground fighting and submission holds. It focuses on the skill of taking an opponent to the ground, controlling one opponent, gaining a dominant position, and using a number of techniques to force them into submission.
BJJ revolves around the concept that a smaller, weaker person can successfully defend themselves against a bigger, stronger, heavier opponent by using leverage and weight distribution.
Ertan Balaban is the very first MMA fighter from Turkey and the founder of the Balaban Gym in Istanbul. In 2001, after he started fighting in MMA he started to train BJJ, since then, he has played a major role in growing the sport in Turkey. Balaban is a second-degree blackbelt under Atos BJJ with the head coach of Andre Galvao and his own coach Leo Davila.
Think of it as an exciting adventure where you can learn and improve your grappling & striking techniques, get in better shape and detox your body and mind.
Unlike your typical vacation, a training retreat is a chance to immerse yourself in your favorite martial arts, learn the unique training method of Traditional Lethwei and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.
You’ll be guided along by the champion himself, Dave Leduc, and TV star & 2nd Degree BJJ Black Belt Ertan Balaban as well as other world-class professional coaches dedicated to your well-being.

What do other people say about ALL STAR Training Camp?
My BJJ game stagnated at Brown Belt… it was frustrating. The All Star BJJ camp this past spring was the EXACT shot-in-the-arm I needed! … it was INTENSE and exhausting… and I can’t wait to come back! – Justin,
I traveled from Chicago to Antalya, Turkey for the All-Star BJJ camp with Ertan Balaban in April of 2019. Overall, it was a perfect opportunity for me to learn new techniques and to heighten my Jiu-Jitsu skills with the added bonus of experiencing Turkish culture at the same time – Laura,
What makes Dave Leduc special is not just his championship level skills and technique but his
unmatched energy and passion. – Richard Ho,
