Our man in America, Steve Oxenrider, met up with Master Toddy (Thohsaphon Sitiwatjana) in Bangkok in December 2010. Master Toddy was taught martial arts by Bruce Lee’s teacher in Bangkok. Master Toddy gave Steve a tour of his gymnasium and kick boxing facilities outside Bangkok.

Thohsaphon played one of the ‘kung fu’ students at Hai Fat’s martial arts school in The Man with the Golden Gun (1974). (Normally, he is an instructor in Muay Thai, Thai combat boxing.)

Masters Toddy and Woody (also appeared in TMWTGG) have been friends since childhood. They were both studying engineering at college in Bangkok when they were selected to be in the Bond film. Shortly after making TMWTGG both Masters Woody and Toddy came to England and initially worked as bouncers in London night clubs. Tired of life in the big city, they moved to Oldham, Manchester, England where they started the first muay thai boxing school together.

After spending 16 years in the UK and Ireland, Master Toddy came to the United States and started a muay thai academy in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Master Toddy is currently the President and owner of Ultra Fight Gym/Muay Thai Academy in Bangkok. For more information, visit the official website.
