About Kru Adam
Kru Adam G. ‘Brick’ House is a U.S. Army combat veteran of the 173rd Airborne who was medically retired for PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) following a deployment to the Konar Province of Afghanistan for over a year in OEF (Operation Enduring Freedom) VIII. In a decade of struggling with the personal fallout after war, a joint effort of the Wounded Warrior Project & UFC Gym helped Adam find another positive and constructive outlet which provided healthy support of physical and psychological well-being - training Muay Thai and other martial arts. Adam went on to live at the Muay Thai Academy in Bangkok on a student visa for 2 years, where he focused on training and learning the art of teaching Muay Thai from world renowned Great Grand Master Toddy - Thai boxing champion, trainer of champions, and international Muay Thai Academy owner-operator (as well as author of the Thai government’s Muay Thai curriculum). Adam completed many classes and courses over his long months in Academy, including moving up multiple ranks of coaching certifications to become a Kru (teacher/trainer/coach). Adam is now a graduate of Master Toddy’s Muay Thai Academy Kru course, a certified Muay Thai Kru with the MTIA (Muay Thai International Association), and accredited Muay Thai Academy/school owner-operator with the Thai Ministry of Education.
