102 countries will participate in this year’s WC and the theme of the event is call the Torch of Life.

This is very much in tradition of muaythai in which tradition and respect play an important role. The youth are our future and the event is based around the youth from all the world coming together in fun, cultural and sporting exchange carrying the torch of life in muaythai to a time many of us will not see anymore.

Muaythai is over 1000 years old passed down from generation to generation taking with them values which for others are long forgotten but if you see the smiles, the friendship, the way these kids interact not just at a championship but after through social networking, staying friends and that is the true spirit of such an event to build something much larger than ourselves and through this outstanding young ambassadors leave the legacy behind.
