Pernilla Johannson needs no introduction in the world of female Muaythai. She made her way up through the ranks from the Swedish, to the Nordic, to IFMA and WMC World Champion. After her impressive career and outstanding accomplishments in the ring, Pernilla continued her journey in the sport at the Swedish Muaythai Federation and began work in her social involvement through Frysbox.

One of the main goals of Muaythai is to use the power of sport to contribute to society and to make our communities a better place. Whether it is inside or outside the ring, the values of Muaythai, respect, honour, tradition, excellence and fairplay, are instilled in all participants and stakeholders.
