It is with great sadness that we have heard of the passing of Master Mohammad Agha Tohidi, who has been instrumental in the development of muaythai and in the lives of so many.  

Master Tohidi was a true warrior. As an athlete he was a pioneer of muaythai in the Islamic Republic of Iran and he has competed around the world. He continued his journey within the muaythai family becoming a coach and master of the art and sport of muaythai, the highest ranked in the Islamic Republic of Iran. He inspired many. Courage above all things is the first quality of a true warrior. He took on his final battle and he has delivered a great fight once again. The bravest warrior knows when to retreat. 

He may be gone from this world, but he will live on through the next generation who honour him.
