The 2019 Chungju World Martial Arts Masterships follows IFMA Muay Thai World Championship held last month in Bangkok, Thailand, which was the following qualification tournament (in selected divisions) for The World Games 2021 in Birmingham, Alabama, USA.

Several medalists of IFMA Worlds 2019 are expected to participate, bringing the highest level of competition to the upcoming tournament. The likes of silver medalist Aleksandr Abramov of Russia, world champion Nili Block of Isreal, Jenelyn Olsim of Philippines, Funda Alkayis of Turkey are scheduled to compete in Chungju-si, Korea, International Federation of Muaythai Associations reported.

The list of martial arts includes Taekwondo, Judo, Aikido, among others. The contests are held across numerous venues. Muay Thai bouts are scheduled, alongside Savate (French boxing), at the Hoam Gymnasium. The competitors will square off in the respective weight classes.

The sport of Muay Thai is outlined as the following:

“The traditional form of martial arts in Thailand is called Muay Thai or Thai boxing. It has two contact spots like boxing and four contact spots in the hands and feet like kickboxing. The 8 angas technique is used to make contact by punching, kicking, elbowing, and kneeing. Heading is prohibited for the Thai belief that the soul can escape through such contact. Boxing trunks are worn with a Mongkhon on the head and a Peurakchiat strapped on the arm. Today, gloves are worn as opposed to the past when glass powder was coated on bandaged fingers with hemp.”

More information and schedule can be found on the official website of Chungju 2019.
