In IFMA’s good governance and practice, after every event a survey is conducted to see if the IFMA stakeholders, especially the athletes have comments for improvement.


Abu Dhabi held an exceptional event. Congratulations must go to the UAE Muaythai Federation under chairmanship of H.E. Abdullah Saeed Amer Al Neyadi and Executive Director Mr. Tareq Mohamed Al Mehairi.
