Message From Mr. Raphaël Martinetti
2010 will a historical year for all combat sports as we all join together for the
Sportaccord Combat Games in Bejing. Muaythai is one of the 13 recognised combat
sports but also a martial art with deep tradition and cultural values. 82 countries will
join into IFMA World Championship which is also a qualifier for Beijing.
In the nameof FILA, International Federation of Associated Wrestling Styles, founding sport ofmodern Olympic Games and pillar of the Olympic Movement, I would like to wish all
participants best of luck and send along my sincere birthday wishes for His Majesty
the King of Thailand on this auspicious day for his 82th birthday.
