Master Toddy selling 'official' Muay Thai Kru certification, MABS Worthy?
As part of keeping tabs on Luke 'don't mess with the douche' Holloway.
I have found that he is now considering himself a Kru, thanks to this guy
He was invited by a close friend to try his luck at landing a part in theJames Bond Movie ‘Man with the Golden Gun’ which was filmed mostly in Thailand using the Island of Phi Phi in the Southern Phuket province and the Ancient City located in Samut Prakarn Province just outside Bangkok.
To get the part the young Master Toddy had to fight 6 Chinese champion martial arts experts from the team who starred in Bruce Lee movies having beaten 4 of them and the other two withdrawing Toddy got the part.
He headed out to England shortly after. Master Toddy opened the first ever Muay Thai School in Manchester, England. The school gained notoriety as the trainer began to produce world champions. Students come from as far as 200 miles away just to attend one of Master Toddy’s Muay Thai classes. In England, Master Toddy was known as the father of Muay Thai. His fighters were distinguished champions, his promotions superb. Even now Master Toddy is still known as the BEST Muay Thai trainer and promoter in England and the first to air a live TV promotion to Thailand.
The system known as Master Toddy’s Muay Thai System® which is under the coverage of the M.T.I.A. ACADEMY focuses on not only strengthening the students techniques and physical strength but is also responsible for the psychological strength unique among his students, trainers and fighters.Included in the list of over 40 world champions trained by Master Toddy are: Maurice Smith, Dale “Apollo” Cook, Ronnie Green, Lisa Howarth, Kash “The Flash” Gill, Kiyotaka Kato, and Howard Brown. Of the new generation of fighters in America, Melchor Menor, Ben Garcia, Kit Cope, Shannon Singleton, Gina Corano, Tito Ortiz, Randy Couture and Angela Rivera all rule the ring under Master Toddy’s tutelage.

[h=Great Grand Master Toddy has NEVER allowed anyone to sign the certificates in his stead. All authentic certificates are signed in Bangkok by Great Grand Master Toddy personally. Any certificate printed outside of Bangkok, and or signed outside of Bangkok maybe construed as fakes, holding no ranking or credential with MTIA and or the Thai Government.]4[/h][h=The Master Toddy’s Muay Thai Academy and the Thai Government ONLY sanction the certificates that are authentic.]3[/h]
There is heaps more material that, what I would consider, deserves scrutiny but second opinions would be helpful
He is also producing a show - Tuff Girls

Isn't Gina Carano a Master Toddy product?
Either way, its sad if kru loses its weight thanks to McDojo-izing Muay Thai.
