2013 will see the 2nd edition of the SportAccord World Combat Games, which are under patronage of the IOC, in which the 15 Olympic and non-Olympic combat sports will come to St. Petersburg from the 18th-26th October.

All sports were invited to showcase themselves at the Demo Zone of the SportAccord Convention. IFMA was there in traditional form, bringing Muaythai music, Muay Katchuek and Krabi Krabong. It was a very exciting performance, with the other World Combat Games partner federations also putting on fantastic displays in front of the representative of the Russian government Mr. Trutnev and the President of SportAccord Mr Verbruggen.
