Naban is a term for the various grappling martial arts of Myanmar. Techniques include joint locks, strikes to pressure points, and choke holds. Any part of the opponent's body is a legal target. Naban is a cousin of similar wrestling arts found in places like Cambodia and Tibet.

It was originally based on old Indian styles of wrestling like Malla-yuddha. It became popular in rural areas where it was often performed at festivals. Today, Naban's practice is kept up mostly by the tribes of Myanmar. The Chin, Kachin and Karen have a reputation for their skilled wrestlers.
