Maung Gyi is a Burmese martial artist that introduced Bando into the United States.

Maung Gyi's father was Ba Than (Gyi). He was the Director of Physical Education and Sports in the Ministry of Education in Burma. He always encouraged his son to maintain good health, participate in both individual and team sports, and practice different martial arts systems.

In the early 1960s, Maung Gyi formally began teaching Burmese Bando at American University in Washington D.C.

In 1966, Maung Gyi established the American Bando Association (ABA) in Athens, Ohio. In recent years, Maung Gyi has worked to promote modern Burmese Bando and to be accepted into the expanding community of Asian martial arts in the United States.

Maung Gyi is an accomplished martial artist, as well as a scholar of international law, psycholinguistics, and communications. He is a self-confessed Christian, and often incorporates biblical content into his instructional curriculum. Dr. Gyi was a professor at Ohio University in Athens, Ohio.
