For nowadays is the only Muay Thai Authority the official – World MuayThai Federation.
But many others alternative federation are existed, such as:
- WMC – World Muaythai Council (www.wmcmuaythai.org);
- WBC – World Boxing Council (www.wbcmuaythai.com);
- IFMA – International Federation of Muaythai Amateur (www.ifmamuaythai.org);
- WPMF – World Professional Muaythai Federation (http://www.wpmfmuaythai.com/);
- IAMTF – International Amateur Muay Thai Federation.
Most of alternative non-official authorities were supposed to be part of the WMF but the broke the agreement and went off by themselves.
In the difference to WMC, WBC and WPMF – WMF (World MuayThai Federation Pro) still holds the original mandate from the Thai Govt and also recognition by the Thai National Olympic Committee.
World MuayThai Federation is the more genuine and dedicated organization whose man goal is to promote the Art and Sport and not just to make money.
