European Muaythai Federation

is a representative democracy

European Muaythai Federation is a representative democracy, comprised of 43 national muaythai associations, and is itself recognised by IFMA as one of six continental federations. The organisation of the administration of muaythai is based on a pyramid system of regulations, with IFMA the world governing body, EMF the European governing body and national muaythai associations the governing bodies at domestic level. Subsidiarity should be a guiding principle in this hierarchy of regulations, with international bodies regulating only where international, or in some cases, worldwide action is required. EMF has therefore the following vision of success: "A united European muaythai family working together to improve enjoyment of the game"

competitions

EMF itself has a philosophy of athletes first. To promote the game of muaythai European Muaythai Federation supports its members and makes sure that athletes are the main beneficiaries of European competitions.

Under authority of EMF big muaythai competitions have been held in Europe. Since 2001, muaythai has spread across Europe from Odessa to Lisbon and today muaythai is a martial art widely recognised in the world of sport due to its unique technique, cultural, historical and traditional features. EMF carries out a wide range of activities to promote and develop European muaythai in its championships, cooperation with government and social events with one aim - making this world a better place through sport.

Muaythai

The first known practice of Muaythai as a “sport”, off and away from the heat and chaos of the battlefield occurred during the reign of King Prachao Sua (1697-1709 A.D.). With a great love of the combat art he often fought incognito in local village contests, often beating the local champions. When the nation was at peace, to keep the army busy he often ordered them to train in Muaythai. It was from this that loosely organised competitions started sprouting up around the country.

He illustrated one of the most favourable elements in Muaythai, an indomitable will to win for honour and willingness to face any odds. This can be summarised as: “Nothing can stand against you except yourself”.
