Mardsua was personally welcomed to Monaco by the Vice-President and Technical Director of the Muaythai federation of Monaco (FMSCDA), Mr. Claude Pouget.

The next day, they were granted the honour of introducing Mardsua to Baroness Cécile de Massy, member of the extended family of HSH Prince Albert II, the sovereign ruler of Monaco.

In fact, the Baroness has close ties to sport, as she is an honoured member and Vice-President of FMSCDA. Baroness de Massy agreed with pleasure to a superb Muaythai photo op with Mardsua, complete with Muaythai shorts and gloves, which later made the news. The Baroness visited the seminar and was present when certificates were being awarded to participants with the Deputy Mayor for Sports, Mr. Pastor.
