The son of Master Yotong Senan – the coach behind the success of several muay thai champions – Kru Toy is at Gracie Fusion/Evolve headquarters in Rio de Janeiro to kick start standup training there.
“He’s there to train Rafael dos Anjos for his next fight and to start the muay thai program at Evolve Brazil,” says Rafael Gordinho, younger brother of head coach Roberto Gordo and coach at Evolve academy in Singapore.
