Congrats Ajarn Kevin Seaman

A big Congrats to Sifu Kevin Seaman. He was promoted to Ajarn by Grandmaster Chai Sirisute this past weekend in Buffalo. Sifu has been training with Chai for 25 years. This is a huge honor and Sifu is only one of a few people given this honor by Master Chai. Ajarn is Thai for head instructor. This is the highest honor in Thai Boxing Association.
