Today ever more countries boast their female athletes who have promoted muaythai as self defense, fitness and a way of life in their home countries and whilst bringing pride to their national flag internationally.
IFMA is proud to gather so many outstanding personalities who have dedicated their lives to muaythai, and continue giving positive image to the sport showing that muaythai is truly a sport for everyone.
