Actually, I believe I write like that, for the most part. By that, I mean using good grammar and carefully-selected words. Unfortunately, MOST people do NOT write that well. Most people don't know "your" from "you're", and they butcher all of the "to's". So, yeah, it does sound like the same person wrote all of those testimonals. It could just be coincidence, but what are the odds?

Taifudo is not a new style.
Ajarn Chiwin is an experienced martial artist and a good teacher.
He has studied Muay Chayia under kru Tong, has studied Muay Korat and
different styles of Krabi Krabong, especially from the Lanna region in northern
He traveled to Japan where he studied karate and laido. He studied Aikido, Hung-
Gar, Tang Lang and Tai Chi Chen in Thailand.
Taifudo is what he calls his project, to give people a complete knowledge in Martial Arts.
Students can learn the arts separatedly as well, l have been learning Krabi
Krabong and intend to learn Muay Chayia later on.
He is a very open person and will teach openly to students who are srious about
His school is in Hat Yai, south Thailand.
You'll probably have to help us out with all those "Muays." I know more or less what is meant when someone says "Muay Thai," at least in the U.S. I don't know the difference between that and such things as Muay Chaiya and Muay Korat.
Krabi Krabong is sort of known in the U.S., but I've never seen it. I'm told it's the "classical" art that Muay Thai came from.
I believe that Krabi Krabong is weapon based. I am also interested in how Muays are different from one another.

Chayia and Korat are regions of Thailand, so Muay Chayia and Muay Korat are MA styles of these regions. There are 'muays', depending on the region they come from.
These traditional arts are more complete than ring Muay Thai, have much more techniques and can be deadly (they were used in war).
Krabi Krabong also is a general term that includes all the Thai weapon systems.
l don't rmember the meaning of this term, it should be something like sword and staff.
But again, l have a vague rememberance of its meaning.
Yes, Muay Thai comes from KK.

Reason: wrong info
Thanks Ronin. Yes KK is weapon based. It includes single and double swords (of different length and shape), staff, spear, broadsword.

Mr. Vincent Giordano can tell you everything there is to be known about Thai styles, you can contact him at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested. But he is quite busy and does research and trains in Asia whenever he is free.
Also, if you are interested, you can read some threads here:
or you can buy these dvds, l bought them and they are really eye-opening on the traditional Thai MA:
Whatever the verdict on Tai Fu Do, this is fascinating.
I knew a guy who trained here and he said that the teacher learned most of his stuff (except muay boran) from DVD's and had no lineage for the other arts. Another of his students opened a school called 'Wing Chin Do" and on his website claimed that he and "master" Chewin had taught at Chin Woo Thailand which was completely false. The photo's of young kids in Chin Woo t-shirts was not taken at Chin Woo Thailand and the kids are not Chin Woo students.
