Anyone CAN Do what I have done.  They just need: 

-        The experiences and amazing events I have had in Muay Thai.

-        The gift of seeing and understanding Muay Thai techniques in Thailand.

-        The ability to Type and Market Muay Thai in the world and online.

-        The PASSiON to fight in Thailand and to understand the History of Muay Thai.

-        The blessings of Divine Connections and meeting people in Muay Thai. 

-        The willingness to spend ENDless hours of Time putting all this in writing. 

-        The PASSiON Purpose to sacrifice the Comforts of USA for amazing Thailand.

2. HOW … Certification in ONLY a (3) Day Camp … HOW ?? 

** How can someone be an Instructor by going to a (3) Day Camp ?? 

When a Teacher goes to School, they learn a Curriculum and then they teach it.  With time, practice and experience they become Master Teachers … but they start at the beginning. 

MTM is teaching all Levels of Muay Thai Teachers a Curriculum.  They can start to teach it right away, that is how they will get better at it and then their students will help them learn too.  That’s Muay Thai, it is a Family and a Team growing together to big up the Sport !! 

A TWO Day Camp puts a lot of pressure on MTM, it is a challenge for someone to do this and MTM is fully confident that their Instructors CAN Do It !!  Why … ??  PASSiON !! 

It works because your PASSiON makes it work … Got PASSiON ?? 

At the CAMP, we will totally go over the Material STEP by STEP in (2) Days !!  

Day ONE will be Exercise workouts, background INFO and workouts #1 & #2. 

Day TWO will be Workouts #3, #4 & #5 and then Pictures of all the New MTM Instructors. 

WE will make tons of Notes, ask Questions, Video Tape the Camp and techniques so you can Review them on a Private YouTube Channel.  Then the Instructors are Certified, they go home to PRACTICE the Curriculum and the best way to practice is to TEACH it.  Even if you teach to one or two people … that is how it is done in Thailand.  They learn something, they see something and they just start to Practice it.  Guess what ??  They really do not go to Seminars and if they do it is because they want to learn more things to Practice and Teach.  Honestly, in Thailand … Muay Thai is 

“Caught … it is not Taught !!”

… khun kao JAI mai krap … please understand this ?? ;-)  

Thailand Muay Thai is sooo different from what we call Muay Thai in Western Countries !!  Western Countries are sooo aggressive, they want to CONTROL everything, bottle it up and then sell it for Profit.  Thailand on the low level is very simple, giving, relaxed, serving and relational.  Yet, some Muay Thai leaders are learning from the West, we all have Evil in our hearts, to them it is all business and the love of money brings all kinds of bad things out. 

I actually like other countries like Cambodia, Dutch, Laos, etc. saying they have their own form of Muay Thai … it is all good right ??  Muay Thai is an OPEN Book system, you learn the FIVE Basics or Boxing, Elbows, Knees, Clinching and KICKS then your Personality makes YOUR own style.  Become a teacher, make a life goal to practice it and then teach it to others.  This is what MTM is going to promote.  Through HUMBLE-ness we should all have fun watching our students fight each other because the TEST of all teaching is showing the techniques in the RING – amen. ;-) 

3. WHAT … Level am I ??  I have a Khru Certificate already ??    

** MTM is going to take a stand on … there are no Masters in Muay Thai … only Senior Instructors by AGE, Experience and we should ALL show respect to those who are older than us … that is Thailand.  MTM is going to be different.  Again, we want to be extreme left of Black Belts, Masters, Rankings and the like.  We will do this with the hopes of bringing a Balance to the Arrogance, the Pride and the Macho-ism that has come into the Muay Thai Family world wide. 

One of the first things every Farang encounters at an all Thai Training Camp in Thailand is HUMBLE-ness.  Only at the Farang Camps do you experience Pride and Macho-ism.  At Thai Training Camps in Thailand, you see everyone work with everyone, they have fun, play games and yes they are really tough on each other BUT it is in order to make Hearts into Humble Champions.  With all that said, YES there is LEVELS in MTM but it is just a Curriculum Level of Knowledge … not really that you are higher than someone else.  This will connect us with other organizations because we will promote and teach “Knowledge” NOT a “Ranking”.  MTM will focus on Curriculums, knowing Techniques, being able to do them and teach them.  Then the END result is others will DO the same thing. ;-) 

MTM would say there are FOUR Levels of Muay Thai in Thailand. 

1. Central – Bangkok.

2. Eastern – Essaan.

3. North – Chiang Mai. 

4. South – Nakhon Si, Hat Rai, Trang, Krabi. 

Know matter what Level, experience or skill … anyone can learn more and that is what MTM Curriculum is all about.  PLUS when someone gets involved in the MTM Curriculum, they directly support efforts to bless Thailand and to support Thailand Muay Thai Missions. 

4. WHY … don’t I get a Certificate from Thailand’s government ??  

** Choke DEE krap !!  

If you PAY you can get a Certificate but is it the latest teaching that actually is going on in Thailand, it is old school Muay Boran that is not real Muay Thai in the Ring of today’s Sport ??  Do they give you in WRITING something you can take home to practice and teach ??  Do they give you MANY different techniques from today’s many different Muay Thai Camps in Thailand ??  Do they support the Muay Thai Family or is it all about Money and Business ??  MTM is so unique, we are neutral, we try to be Family to everyone, we give MTM Instructors all the resources to really teach Muay Thai from Thailand, we are not claiming we are the best BUT we have tons of experiences and we will always change and grow with future times in Thailand.  

 

MTM is NOT a Thailand government Certificate ... MOST Muay Thai Certificates are NOT ... amazing !!  


In FACT ... I do not know ONE person in the USA (besides myself) that has a Certificate from Thailand's government !!  


Someone told me you can buy one online and/ or at MBK Muay Thai shops in Bangkok ??   


There are some that are saying that they Certificates are from the Government.  They are getting sued by Thailand right now and honestly it is really sad to see so much Dis-Unity in the Muay Thai Family in Thailand and Worldwide.  MTM wants to promote UNITY, we will focus on teaching and sharing curriculum from Thailand.  MTM was going to be fully connected with the Muay Thai Thailand government but it is just not working good right now … maybe in the future.   MTM made a decision to just be the best we can be, to teach and show real Muay Thai from Thailand and to not get involved in the drama and politics of Muay Thai.  There are many reasons it is so hard for Muay Thai to be in UNITY.  There are sooo many camps, sooo many teachers, sooo many styles and sooo many leaders wanting control.  MTM is going to focus on teaching, trying to teach it all and this will allow MTM to be connected with ANY Muay Thai Camp in Thailand and that is an Amazing Way to do it !!  


NOTE !!  We are praying that MTM will connect with the Thailand government in the FUTURE. ;-)  

2009 Thailand's government, the Muay Thai College Bangkok, graduated (14) Thai people with a PHD Dr. in Muay Thai for the purpose to bring Muay Thai back to the schools, colleges and universities of Thailand.  We are close friends with ONE Adjan so in the Future we believe we will connect with him and promote more Curriculum and Certifications from Thailand's OFFICIAL Government of Muay Thai.  So BE It Phra JAO. ;-)
