Toshio Fujiwara (藤原 敏男 Fujiwara Toshio, born March 3, 1948) is a well-known Japanese former kickboxer who teaches at his own gym, TOSHIO FUJIWARA SPORTS GYM, in Tokyo. His most famous student in recent years is Satoshi Kobayashi, but many other well-known kickboxers and mixed martial artists have also trained with him.
Out of 141 professional fights before retiring at age 35, Fujiwara won 126, with a remarkable 99 by knockout. Most notably, he was the first non-Thai to win a national Muay Thai title belt in Bangkok, a fact that many older Thais still remember and respect about him. Fujiwara became the first ever non-Thai stadium champion in 1978 when he won the lightweight title at Rajadamnern Stadium.
