Janet Todd has never stopped in her pursuit of greatness. Besides being an aerospace engineer, Todd is a dedicated professional Muay Thai artist, and she trains twice a day to improve her skills while regularly competing all around the world. Her hard work and determination have led her to great success, including multiple medals in Muay Thai competition.
Todd was raised in a strict household in Southern California, where her Japanese mother enrolled her in a variety of classes to constantly challenge her both physically and mentally. The foundations of her athletic career were laid through gymnastics, and “JT” eventually found her way to a Muay Thai gym while searching for a way to have fun and stay active. She would fall in love with Muay Thai immediately, and she has since ventured as far as the striking art’s birthplace of Thailand to sharpen her skills.
The American previously trained under the legendary Sangtiennoi Sor Rungroj at his gym, where she was amazed and inspired by the power and ferocity of his other students. This lit a fire in her that burns to this day, and she soon became a two-time Pan-American Muay Thai Champion.
In February 2019, Todd’s passion led her to the global stage of ONE Championship. Although she lost to Stamp Fairtex in her debut, she won three consecutive bouts to earn a rematch with the two-division ONE World Champion. Then, in the main event of ONE: KING OF THE JUNGLE in February 2020, “JT” defeated her old rival via split decision to claim the ONE Atomweight Kickboxing World Title.
