As my post up several muay thai amateur organizations recognize the graduation in Muaythai
In this photo of the muay thai institute he uses undergraduate
Diploma of a muay thai organization in thailand
Look at the arrows

They are not responsible for issuing an undergraduate degree in muaythai
I search MTSBA and it says they are the only ones in Thailand that do it. Their Facebook shows mainly LARP’s in Muay Boran costumes.
To be honest I think I’d treat it the same way I treat BJJ belts. If somebody wants to give me one that’s great, but I’m not going out of my way for it, and I’m sure as shit not paying for a fucking grading! I’ll stick with my white monkong and keep rag dolling the black belts thanks. As long as the training is good.
I think I’d be pretty embarrassed to tell people outside the gym about it too. Bjj is a bit cringy but isn’t so bad because it’s related to competition, but MT?
“how many fights have you had?”
“None, but I’m a brown Mongkol!”
I'm 200-0 in sparring bud. With 50 finishes.
Friends, this applies to muay thai amateur, you are confused with professional muaythai
Muay Thai Professional has no graduation and most publicized in Thailand. Muaythai Profisiional has undergraduate and undergraduate all over the world!
P.S: Do not confuse Muay Thai with Muay Boran are different things
If it claims to be muay thai and has a grading - disregard it. Thai doesn't mean traditional, and it doesn't mean authentic either.
