For the last 24 months, Muaythai has been busy developing a new education system with the leading experts in Muaythai. This education system is called IGLA, which implements the use of the current Khan system which everyone is familiar with, and aids in the preparation of all practitioners of the sport and art of Muaythai to attain the different levels of Khan.
Muaythai in its core is a historical martial art, but as it continues to grow and gain popularity worldwide, we must also move forward with the times and utilize the technologies that available on hand to educate the next generation of Muaythai athletes and practitioners. IGLA utilizes the “IGLA Muaythai Animation Education System (IMAES),” which will help trainers and teachers in Muaythai gyms and camps teach all of the Muaythai skills from the fundamental to the intermediate and onwards to more advanced skills. The advantage of using the animated system in teaching and training is that trainers and teachers will be able to really go into the specific details of each move which will help their students understand and get an idea of what needs to be done.
The WMC and IFMA certified IGLA system has now been fully developed and will be incorporated in all 128 member countries next year, which in turn will open a new chapter in the sport and cultural art form of Muaythai. In order to make Muaythai to the next level, we will continue to use what we have learned from the past and respect and keep these time-honoured traditions and strive for excellence in the future by integrating this new education system.
