HOW TO GRADE YOUR STUDENTS

Instructor Course Testimonials...

Ajarn Harry Warburton's Experience with Master Toddy:

"My story begins some 41 years ago, when as a young 16 year old boy, I travelled to Manchester to look up a gym advertising full contact karate with the then champion Lance Lewis, and situated in Deansgate. I arrived early and there was a class already in progress. As I looked on with interest, one of the trainers (Master Toddy) saw me watching and invited me in to look... what I witnessed astounded me and I quickly forgot all about the class I had originally gone to see and so began my journey in Muay Thai with Master Toddy as my trainer.

I returned the following week to start training and I will remember this for as long as I live. After almost 2 hrs I was completely exhausted but also felt elated, Master Toddy was a truly fantastic teacher who always brought out the best in his students. I was training alongside Ronnie Green and thought to myself this is what I want to do with my life...

I remember my legs starting to ache walking back to the station to catch my train home to Wigan. I got on the train, immediately fell asleep, and woke up in Southport, the end of the line, some 25 miles or so further on down the line. I got the next train back, fell asleep again and.... woke up back in Manchester! Boy, did I ache the next day. Those were the days. Training was hard. It was not unusual to finish a class with 300 sit-ups and 200 push-ups.

Master Toddy instilled in all of us a sense of loyalty to the gym and to each other, we bonded together and forged friendships lasting to this day.

When Master Toddy sparred with the students he never hurt anyone, you learned from him, even though most of the time you felt like you were fighting a ghost, impossible to beat.

One minor point though, if you made a mistake, he had a habit of pinching the skin on your legs with his toes, funny to see the student being disciplined this way and how they would let out a yell in surprise.

Master Toddy also has a great sense of humor. One day he sent all of us out to do some roadwork on the streets of Manchester. We dutifully filed out the gym and began jogging. As soon as we rounded a corner and was out of sight, our ringleader Ronnie Green (although he will probably deny it) ordered us all to stop and sit down in the sun for 20 minutes. We would go back later, run done and dusted.. or so we thought. Not 2 minutes had passed before Master Toddy came jogging around the very same corner to catch us and find us all relaxing. The press ups we got later were the stuff legends were made of.

Master Toddys unique way of teaching produced many champions. He could watch you and correct mistakes and make you better with every lesson.

When the time came to open my own gym a few years later, Master Toddy was there on the first night, to help, give advice and a short demo. He brought the house down, the people of Wigan had never seen anything like it. He left to thunderous applause and the next day my gym was full of new students eager to learn.

I've always tried to teach how I was taught and the lessons I learned along the way. The results spoke for themselves. Many of my own fighters became champions, including the former WKA heavyweight world champion Shaun Johnson and several British champions.

After a few years, my day job led me to work in Germany, where I met my wife Tina and decided to settle down to a new life.

Five years ago I opened a gym where I now live, in Lörrach on the French/Swiss border and named the new gym Ayutthaya gym, this name was given to me by Master Toddy.

After 2 years we had to move to new premises as student number continued to grow and the gym became too small.

The bigger gym is still growing and we now have around 200 students and some good fighters coming up the ranks.

We run annual trips to Thailand so my own students can benefit from training under Master Toddy and his team of very experienced trainers.

I consider it one of my greatest privileges to have been taught by Master Toddy, he is and always will be my teacher and above all, my friend."

Ajarn Ali Yassini's Experience with Master Toddy:

"Master Toddy’s Muay Thai System is a great way to implement a system which includes the Muay Thai teaching as well as the knowledge of growing your Muay Thai school.

By establishing and following Grand Master Toddy’s teaching style and his knowledge of running a successful Muay Thai gym, you will be amazed by the outcome of his method of teaching and running a business. In 2011, as a Canadian Immigrant, I opened my own gym in Canada, utilizing Master Toddy’s Muay Thai system.

Although I had no experience of how to run a business in Canada, I decided to follow Grand Master Toddy’s advice on how to teach and how to do business.

At the beginning, it was a little bit tuff since Canadians had little knowledge of Grand Master Toddy or even the art of Muay Thai, so I tried to follow the steps that Master Toddy gave me, such as: how to approach and talk to your first lead student, how to teach classes to beginners, intermediate and advance levels, how to make a plan to teach during the week days, how to promote students and so much more …….and it worked well. 

His advice worked out amazing. Today we are a very well-known Muay Thai gym in Ontario, Canada and we have many students, all of which I am very proud of.  All of our students are respectful, loyal and friendly and I love sharing my knowledge with them on the art of Muay Thai.

At the end, I humbly thank Great Grand Master Toddy for all his supports over the years. To me, he is more than a teacher, he is my great mentor & friend and brother. God bless him and his loved ones."

Ajarn Joe Ingrati's Experience with Master Toddy: 

I cannot thank you enough for encouraging me to adopt your Muay Thai Curriculum into my school. As you know I was very hesitant in doing so as it was totally different to what I have been teaching. Since we first met in 2009 when you visited my school in Sydney Australia you showed and proved to me how it could be done.

I am so grateful that I listened to you and began my journey in pursuing my Muay Thai training.  Once we embraced your system we realized how easy it is to implement. Your step by step programs thru all the rankings make it exciting and rewarding for all our students. 

The Grading System is so unique that it makes me wonder why no one else has done that before.

We have had parents of students join our classes whom I thought would never get involved in any Martial Arts program. I honestly do not believe that we would of been able to grow and grow the way we have if we did not have your program. 

But what I like the best is that there is always help and follow up from you or your great trainers if we need anything.

With your support, great products to compliment our authentic Muay Thai classes etc.. we are destined to grow our schools ten fold.

Every school owner I meet I encourage them 100% to implement your system and I stress to them that they will never regret doing so it's s great addition to their school and a fantastic retention opportunity.

In ending I am really indebted to your help, mentoring and friendship Sir.
