An R&J Seminar for National level Referees & Judges was held in the city of Fortaleza, capital of Ceará on Saturday 28th of September.

The seminar covered the International Rules and Regulations of IFMA and was organized by Federation CE, which has been working towards the development of Muaythai in the Northeast.

According to Ingrid Jost, IFMA international referee and newly elected IFMA Executive Board member,  it is vital to highlight the importance of standardizing the rules in the world “we are one step from Olympic recognition and for that we need all speak the same language, and know the rules is essential both for officials, athletes and coaches”.
Jost continues “I’m happy because this was the largest seminar in public in recent years, which shows that the Northeast has a lot to offer for Muaythai Brazil”.
