A four-time world champion Muay Thai fighter has visited Mandurah’s True Grit gym, imparting his wisdom to members.
True Grit trainer Chantal Green Perth man said Toby Smith was ranked number one in the super-middleweight division under a World Boxing Council sanction.
“Toby’s one of Australia’s best Muay Thai fighters we’ve ever had,” she said.
“I can’t even remember the last time he has been defeated – he’s on a winning streak.”
Green said Smith recently held two open seminars for about 25 people.
“Everyone loved it and the young kids really got a buzz out of it and meeting someone famous in their eyes,” she said.
“They were like sponges just soaking up the knowledge and skill Toby was teaching them.”
Green said she received “excellent” feedback from Smith.
“Toby was very happy with the level of people we had come and the respect they showed,” she said.
“We all had some laughs, sweat and a great two hours of training from one of Australia's best.”
