Kru Kostas Theodoulou is now KRU YAI!
“After many years of training, fights, journeys, so much reading… a new path is ahead! From now and on kru Yai and very blessed that I have acknowledge from such respectful grandmasters Sane Tubtimtong and Chinawut Sirisompan ! Kop koun maa Krup”
Those are the words of kru Kostas Theodoulou at his account at Facebook. He traveled to Thailand one more time and there he met his teacher Grand master Sane Tubtimtong.
After examination in front of three grand masters
and a seminar he made, kru Kostas explained the involvement of muay thai boran to the modern form of the fighting sport as it is known and the connection of thai movements with thai history and mythology (ramakien), the plan for teaching and how to make students to hold pads, muay plam (clinching). Also the knowledge of his students Petros and Giorgos Papoutsakis and their ability for teaching and fighting made a good impression.
After all this, Grand Masters decided to upgrade Kru Kostas to the next level of 13 khan as KRU YAI and his students Petros and Giorgos as KRU (12 khan).
