The International Federation of Muaythai Amateur is not only the world recognised federation for sport of muaythai. It is so much more than that. IFMA is family. A family made up of a growing number of member federations working together to develop the sport in one unified direction.

This year’s IFMA Awards honoured the hard work, and efforts of their outstanding members. The nominees for Federation of the Year were Brazil, Hong Kong, Russia and Finland.

Presenting the award was Sami Kiblawi, President of the Lebanese Muaythai Federation and IFMA Executive Board Member. The award went to the Russian Muaythai Federation (RMTF).
