International Thai Martial Arts Games



In 2016, the International Thai Martial Arts Games & Festival (ITMA Games) were founded by several esteemed organizations, including the World Muay Thai Organisation (WMO), the World Muay Boran Federation (WMBF), and the Kru Muay Thai Association (KMA). Their shared vision was to preserve and promote the cultural heritage of Thailand through the power of martial arts.
Held at the prestigious Bangkok National Stadium, the ITMA Games drew in hundreds of participants from over 30 countries. Attendees were treated to a thrilling display of combat sports such as Muay Thai and Dab Thai, as well as cultural showcases featuring traditional dances and other art forms. The festival also offered a range of seminars and courses, including the highly-coveted judge and referee course.
The success of the inaugural games was a source of great pride for the organizers, who were inspired to make them an annual event. Year after year, the ITMA Games have grown in popularity, recognition, and significance, establishing themselves as a must-see event in the martial arts and cultural calendar. This success is a testament to the enduring legacy of Thai culture and the unwavering commitment of the ITMA Games organizers to showcase its richness and diversity to the world.
