Italy Muaythai: Road to the Royal World Cup

Preparations are underway as the Italian Muaythai Federation set outs out on the road to the 2015 Royal World Cup. Preparations have begun for the Italian Junior Team which will compete for HRH the Prince’s Trophy, one of the three highly coveted trophies at the event.

The other two trophies will be HM the King’s Cup, and HM the Queen’s Cup. This will be the largest ever single sport event in Thailand, and the presence of all three Royal Trophies at the event will be something that all National Federations under IFMA are not going to want to miss out on.The Italian Muaythai Federation held a special workshop for the “New Generation” of Muaythai athletes in which 34 children attended. Local Muaythai athletes were present to help train the younger generation and pass on their knowledge and experience.

Over all, it was a great event in which the trainers and older athletes passed on their passion, dedication and love for the sport and cultural art form of Muaythai. Congratulations to the Italian Muaythai Federation. It is great to see Muaythai being passed on to the next generation and that the five pillars of Muaythai: respect, honour, tradition, fair play, and excellence are kept alive.
