In Remembrance of Kru Yodtong Senanan

The world lost a truly great man on Friday with the passing of Kru Yodtong Senanan.  As the Founder and Grandmaster of the famed Sityodtong Muay Thai Camp, Kru Yodtong is unquestionably the most influential man in the history of Muay Thai.  Through his tireless commitment to the sport, he produced 57 Muay Thai champions and shaped the lives of countless others all across the world.  Yet, he was so much more than just a teacher of champions.   Kru Yodtong was a builder of great men and women.  His teachings transcended the sport of Muay Thai and served as the guiding principles from which to lead an honorable life with a warrior spirit.  He lived a selfless life in the service of the less fortunate.    His wisdom was unparalleled, and his heart was made of gold.  He saved the lives of countless orphans from the streets of Thailand, and he showed hopeless people that there was hope.  The world we live in is a better place because of Kru Yodtong’s life. 

Though we can never hope to replace Kru Yodtong Senanan, we can honor his life by continuing on his mission.  By spreading the power of martial arts, we can make the world a better place.  There are no words great enough to express our gratitude for all that he has done.  Let us end simply by saying, thank you Kru Yodtong Senanan.  We will carry on your teachings to the world.  We will honor your life.
