Federazione Italiana Muaythai (FIMT) recently held a special qualification event for the Junior Muaythai team which will participate in the upcoming 2015 IFMA Royal World Cup in Bangkok, Thailand. The selection process was carefully carried out to evaluate the athletic and psychological aptitude of the young Muaythai athletes which was conducted by a special team funded by CONI, the National Olympic Committee of Italy.
The special process and lengths to which FIMT is going to, with the support of their National Olympic Committee, shows how important youth are in the sport of Muaythai and that as they are our future, we must do all we can to ensure that they are protected and properly trained in the sport and cultural art form of Muaythai.
FIMT also conducted a special afternoon session focusing on technique and discipline for all the participating youth. It will be great to see these young aspiring athletes represent their country, their flag, and their families at the upcoming 2015 IFMA Royal World Cup.
Congratulations to FIMT and all stakeholders who put in the hard work into shaping the future of Muaythai, the youth.
