We all remember the unforgettable Olympic Games in Rio 2016, and it was only four months after the closing that IFMA was granted recognition from the IOC showcasing the work IFMA has done fulfilling the criteria. 


IFMA today has 130 member federations and over 80 of them are recognised by their National Olympic Committee and/or Government Sport Authority. The Olympic Committee of Brazil in a special ceremony gave recognition to IFMA’s member National Federation in Brazil, the CBMTT adding another one to the list.


IFMA Sport Director Mrs. Charissa Tynan stated that muaythai in Brazil has a large and equal popularity among female and male, and important grass root development has been done.


IFMA congratulates the Brazilian Muaythai Federation and all athletes in Brazil.
