Did you know that the Thai Boxing Association of the U.S.A. (TBA-USA), the oldest and largest Muay Thai organization in the United States, was founded in 1968 by Grand Master Ajarn Surachai "Chai" Sirisute?  (Ajarn, in the Thai language, means teacher; in high repect.)  Ajarn Chai came to the United States with a vision to spread Muay Thai throughout the world, and he is the first-ever Thai boxing instructor to teach Americans this art and he has worked tirelessly for over 40 years to that end.  We are indeed grateful to Ajarn Chai for his gift of the knowledge of Muay Thai. In Muay Thai Kickboxing, powerful kicks, devistating knees and slashing elbows are just a few of the best techniques out there that champions of the Mixed Martial Arts sport in UFC use them.

 "The world is changing and Ju Jutsu has to change too. I don’t think it’s practical to limit ourselves to one particular style. I no longer see any point in keeping the techniques of each Ju Jutsu school a secret. It would be better to experiment with a whole range of techniques and select the ones you want to use, changing them if necessary. I’d like to take the best techniques from the Yoshin style and the best techniques from a lot of other styles and combine them all to create the ultimate form of Ju Jutsu. Last year after we performed for President Grant, Master Fukuda spoke of bringing Ju Jutsu to the rest of the world. To do that, we can’t rely on just one particular style – we need a combination of the best techniques from all the major schools of Ju Jutsu. That’s what I’d like to teach to the rest of the world." -- Jigoro Kano, 1880
