On Sunday, 08 May, 2011, Grand Master Mohammad H. Abid honoured us with his presence at the Sports Authority of India Complex, Kandivali East, Mumbai and awarded TCF members Zaheerali Furniturewalla and Siddhesh Shirgaonkar with the ‘Khan 1′ (White Mongkol) Level in Muay Thai after they successfully cleared the curriculum examination.
Grand Master Mohammad H. Abid is the highest graded Indian in Muay Thai and he’s the only person in India who can grade Muay Thai trainees. He founded Muay Thai India (MTI) in 1992 with a mission of offering training of international standards in Muay Thai. MTI is headquartered in Bangalore and is recognized by the Indian Olympic Association (IOA).
Zaheer has been training with TCF for the past 3 and a half years and has won the National Muay Thai Championship Title 2009 in the 91+ Kgs weight category and a Silver medal each in the 2010 and this year’s National Muay Thai Championship!
Siddhesh has been training with TCF for the past 6 months and has won a Bronze medal in this year’s National Muay Thai Championship in the 63-67 Kgs weight category!
I personally congratulate Zaheer and Siddhesh on this achievement. Both of you have done me proud!
Going forward, TCF will offer Muay Thai Gradings every three months and request Trainees to try to grade once every six months.
