Interesting Article “Sityodtong Muay Thai Legacy”

Posted in Muay Thai, Sityodtong with tags , , , , , , , , , , on February 21, 2008 by muaypride

Just found this new page at Sityodtong LA’s website “Sityodtong Muay Thai Legacy.” It’s basically the story about Kru Yodtong Senanan (or Yodthong Senanan), his influence and dedication to the art and sport of Muay Thai.

….”The significance of Muay Thai’s Kru Yodtong Senanan’s recent U.S. visit may have been lost to those unfamiliar with his celebrated contributions to the ancient art. But for students and trainers devoted to the art and sport of Muay Thai, his presence was treated with the kind of reverence usually reserved for dignitaries of international distinction.

So important is Kru Yodtong’s role in preserving the history culture that the Kingdom of Thailand recognized him as a “Superior Teacher of Muay Thai. ” With the proclamation issued directly from the Royal Family, Yodtong’s place of honor as a master, teacher and conservator of the sport will be forever documented in the annals of Thai history.” ……

Kru Yodtong Senanan - In operation for over four decades, the camp has turned out a long list of champions.
