World Muaythai Council http://www.wmcmuaythai.org The Official World Governing Body for Professional Muaythai Thu, 24 Jul 2014 05:29:03 +0000 en-US hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=3.9.1 South Africa Kicks the Habit in This Week’s Social Campaign Highlight http://www.wmcmuaythai.org/2014/07/24/south-africa-kicks-the-habit-in-this-weeks-social-campaign-highlight http://www.wmcmuaythai.org/2014/07/24/south-africa-kicks-the-habit-in-this-weeks-social-campaign-highlight#comments Thu, 24 Jul 2014 05:29:03 +0000 http://www.wmcmuaythai.org/?p=8466 Giving back to society is a huge part of muaythai, and IFMA’s Sport is Your Gang social campaign, which won the SportAccord 2014 Spirit of Sport Award, is implemented in many countries through our different federations around the world. This week, we would like to highlight the South African Amateur Muaythai Federation for their social work with Sport is Your Gang.

Earlier this month on the 18th on July, our South African Federation held a 67-minute “Kick & Roll the Habit” charity event in honour of Nelson Mandela’s birthday. South African stats on crime, drugs, and women and children abuse are extremely high; the “Kick & Roll the Habit” Muaythai Challenge serves as a platform to kicking all bad habits and abuse away, cleansing the body mind and soul.

Everyone from the community was involved, from holding kick-pads to encouraging the youth and young adults as they kicked their way non-stop for 67 minutes to raise money for the foundation. Last year, in 2013 the total number of kicks by youth and young adults in 67 minutes was 19,643 kicks. This year, the recorded number of kicks by the participants went up to 22,743 kicks in 67 minutes.

Congratulations to the South African Federation for doing an amazing job with supporting underprivileged kids, taking them off the streets and giving them hope and encouragement to kick the habit. Muaythai truly is more than just a sport as its students from all walks of life get to learn and practice respect, honour, tradition, excellence and fair-play the pillars of Muaythai, and essentially pillars for a good life.

Saint-Tropez in Muaythai Fever http://www.wmcmuaythai.org/2014/07/23/saint-tropez-in-muaythai-fever http://www.wmcmuaythai.org/2014/07/23/saint-tropez-in-muaythai-fever#comments Wed, 23 Jul 2014 04:28:03 +0000 http://www.wmcmuaythai.org/?p=8455 One of the most famous, jet-setting, high-society places in the world will be the centre of the muaythai world on August 4th. Promoter Olivier Muller, in cooperation with the World Muaythai Council (WMC), the International Federation of Muaythai Amateur (IFMA), have put together a truly promising fightcard.

The event is also in cooperation with the Peace & Sport campaign, under the high patronage of HSH Prince Albert II of Monaco, and the Muaythai & UN “UNiTE to End Violence Against Women” campaign. The Thai ambassador to France His Excellency M. Apichart Chinwanno, will be representing the Kingdom of Thailand, while Mr Joel Bouzou, the president of Peace & Sport, will be there in person.

Olivier Muller, the president of the Swiss Muaythai Network stated that a lot of planning has gone into the event, which has the full support of Brigitte Bardot and her Foundation.

IFMA General Secretary and WMC Vice President, Stephan Fox stated that the event is a fantastic follow up to last month’s event in Monaco, the Monte-Carlo Fighting Masters, which was under patronage of HSH Prince Albert II of Monaco. The event is a great promotion for muaythai as a cultural heritage, exciting ring sport, and the social contribution the sport makes to society.

IFMA Sport Director, Charissa Tynan, who will be representing muaythai and UNiTE’s End Violence Against Women campaign in St Tropez stated that she is really excited that the campaign will be officially launched later in the year, starting off with a bang in Mexico, and that she is honoured to be in Saint-Tropez for this world class muaythai event.

From Amateur to Professional: The Evolution of a Muaythai Athlete http://www.wmcmuaythai.org/2014/07/15/from-amateur-to-professional-the-evolution-of-a-muaythai-athlete http://www.wmcmuaythai.org/2014/07/15/from-amateur-to-professional-the-evolution-of-a-muaythai-athlete#comments Tue, 15 Jul 2014 05:57:59 +0000 http://www.wmcmuaythai.org/?p=8439 What does The Contender Asia, The Challenger Muaythai, KMax, K1, Glory, Thai Fight, and Thai Max Have in common? All the superstars have strong backgrounds and ties with IFMA and WMC.

Buakaw, Yodsanklai, Khem, Mardsua and so many others represented   Thailand in IFMA World Championships, World combat games and fought for pride and honour for the Kingdom. Female superstars like Chommanee, Caley Reece, Miriam Nakamoto, and Valentina Shevchenko, to name a few, all have been IFMA Champions and have become superstars in their representative countries.

Superstars like Paul Slowinski, Artem Vakhitov, Andrei Kulebin, Dzianis Hancharonak, Artem Levin and so many others also started their careers in IFMA. They all become multiple champions in IFMA before they become WMC Champions and also joined other event series.

WMC Vice President and IFMA General Secretary Stephan Fox stated that this marriage is of the utmost importance for many reasons. First and foremost is that it is important that they, the athletes, can make their way up from amateur competitions like National championships, Continental and World Championships

Only IFMA can give the athletes the chance to fight at Olympic patronized events and the chance to be with other Olympic recognized Martial arts in competitions such as the Indoor Asian games, Asian Beach games, TAFISA Sport for All, Arafura and certainly other IOC Recognized events such as the World Combat Games and the World Games.

This is the difference and this is why all the superstars compete in IFMA by example when it comes to IOC Recognized events. They are also able to join Television shows such as Contender and Emmy nominated reality shows like The Challenger, participate in the WMC world events and have the foundation to join other shows around the world.

Stephan Fox also stated the future of the shows look bright; events like the Fighting Masters in Monte-Carlo, Monaco where HSH Prince Albert II gave patronage to the event is a clear example of how much high profile and credibility the sport of Muaythai has gained. In 2013, Muaythai was also included the World Combat Games under patronage of the IOC and the Indoor Asian games under patronage of the OCA. 2013 also saw Muaythai being included in the International World Games Association (IWGA), and only a year later has been included in the official sport program as well. This year, Muaythai is one of the main sports in the upcoming Asian Beach games, also under the Olympic Committee of Asia. This shows the recognition Muaythai now has and that only IFMA is the true authority of the sport, recognized by SportAccord, IWGA, TAFISA, Arafura, and the Olympic Committee of Asia. The future of Muaythai from the top to the bottom looks bright.

In round three, Jamie landed several strong punches that seemed to rock Frankie and this found Jamie with new found confidence. From this point on, it was a fight that see sawed backwards and forwards with both fighters hurting one another with shots for the remainder of the bout.

Stepping in the ring once again was done for many reasons. First of all to show the younger generation that if you live a healthy lifestyle, that age becomes only a number; and secondly to also encourage the younger generation to support the anti-drug campaign and that illegal drugs have no place in life and sport.

Winning the fight, he said that it was fantastic to step back in the ring again with the support of everyone, and raising awareness. Now it’s time to go back again and hang up the gloves, if you will, and return to fostering and promoting the sport both as a coach and as a WMC and IFMA official. He also plans to continue his involvement in helping to make a difference in the sport.
