I see two options.

1. Prevent the event from being propagated to the class.

def breaker(*args):
    return "break"

mytext.bind("<Control-a>", breaker)

2. Unbind the event on the class level.

mytext.unbind_class("Text", "<Control-a>")

Maybe you should just disable the widget?

mytext["state"] = "disabled"
