Being a SportAccord member and part of the recognised world sporting federation and associate members like IWGA and FISU, has serious advantages for sports, especially for the ones which are not yet in the Olympic programme or individually recognised by IOC.

Knowledge sharing, use of resources, and cooperation can only be useful for the most important part of any international sporting unit – the athletes. One of the partnerships by example is IFMA partnership and friendship with The International Federation of Sports Chiropractic (FICS) a member of SportAccord and an organisation which IFMA has been working closely together with.

At this IFMA World Championships the partnership moved to a new level with direct participation with FICS chiropractic where a special area was designated where athletes and coaches could get treatment free of charge for injuries, adjustments or assessments. The athletes praised this cooperation and IFMA would like to thank FICS for their contribution towards the muaythai athletes and we hope that these relationships will continue to benefit our muaythai family.
