Athletes from over 100 national federations are in full preparations for the upcoming IFMA World Virtual Championships.


The event’s format, which launched during the pandemic, will continue to be developed and implemented post-pandemic towards IFMA’s strategic plan for sustainable development. The IFMA virtual world championships are about promoting health and fitness and social inclusion, solidarity, and friendship.


IFMA President Dr Sakchye Tapsuwan stated, “We are also planning for our first post-pandemic IFMA World Championships this December in Thailand, an event that we hope to become a beacon of hope for unity and solidarity.”


The Chair of IFMA’s Athletes’ Commission, Janice Lyn, outlined that at present many countries are either still in lockdown or returning to restrictive measures, which is why the IFMA created this platform. To ensure that everyone stays active and continues to find new ways to protect the ancient muaythai traditions. In addition, new exercises have been developed to provide new challenges, giving thousands of IFMA athletes the chance to compete.”



IFMA Director Charissa Tynan further stated that thanks must go to the various hard-working IFMA Commissions such as the Technical, Athletes’ ad Medical Commissions under the steadfast guidance of the IFMA executive committee. They have all rolled up their sleeves once again to ensure that regardless of the hardships and challenges, IFMA can continue to evolve and create opportunities out of the crisis.



The event will take place from 1-8th October. Let the games begin!
