Muaythai Canada is one of the 130 national federations of IFMA, and just have received as a testimony of their hard work recognition by Ontario Government. The General Secretary of the Canadian Muaythai Federation Michael Reid said that it’s an important step forward for Canada Muaythai and important for all the athletes practicing muaythai regardless for competition or as the way of life.
The recognition was only given two weeks after the IOC recognition of IFMA and now many other Canadian provinces will follow the Ontario example.
Canada has been in every IFMA event for more than 15 years producing many outstanding athletes. Janice Lyn, who is the Chair of IFMA Athletes’ Commission and a proud Canadian stated that Canada will continue to live up to their responsibilities as IFMA national federation, and like IFMA Muaythai Canada makes athletes the heart and soul of the sport.
IFMA would like to congratulate Muaythai Canada for all the outstanding work they have done and will continue to do.
