As time goes on, I realize my fighting days are almost over...and my next step, i'd like to spread the art of muay thai into my area by not only teaching, but promoting shows...

I have aboslutely ZERO idea how to start and run a show...I have no clue how much capital i'd need...

So i'm asking, as a complete lost n00b, where do I begin? Does anyone have any good references or resources for me to educate myself? Any and all advice is appreciated!

I don't know much about how you break into the fighting world. Bill "Superfoot" Wallace did because he was famous within the kickboxing world already. Joe Rogan was also well known as a celebrity personality and MA enthusiast when he signed on with UFC. I would suggest finding some amateur events that will hire you to do it first. Small events that you can use to help get your name out there. Also, start a podcast that is related to the MA that you would like to start promoting for and promote yourself like crazy.
