Where is your phone number?2019-02-08T10:57:58-04:00

Sorry, at this time MTO does not have a dedicated phone line. We are best reached online through this contact form.

What is a rush fee?2019-02-08T21:27:29-04:00

A rush fee is required only if you are submitting anything 2-5 days before you compete/corner at an event.

As we get many submissions throughout the week, a rush fee will prioritize your submissions over others to ensure your MTO Online Passport is updated before you compete/corner.

 

What is a Full Contact Exhibition (FC Exh)?2019-04-04T14:50:37-04:00

A Full Contact Exhibition (FC Exh) match follows nearly the exact same rules as judged competition. There is no restriction on the use of power in a full-contact exhibition. Athletes are still able to go full out, however, regardless of the outcome the match is considered an exhibition. It will still count towards a record, but it will not add a win or loss to the record. For example, “1-2-0; 1 Exh”

The differences are:

  • No elbows to the body are permitted
  • If an athlete bleeds the bout will be stopped regardless of severity
  • 16 oz gloves and leather shin guards are worn in exhibitions (and must be brought by athlete) vs. the usual 10 ounce gloves and cloth shin guards provided by the event host in judged competition

This is not to be mistaken with Light Contact Exhibitions, which do not allow head contact.

What if I’m an athlete and a coach?2019-02-08T17:54:55-04:00

You do not need to pay a separate membership fee for each ‘role’ you select in your membership form.

No matter how many ‘roles’ you choose (athlete, coach, or official), the membership fee is still $55 + tax.

What do I need to compete? Medical and labwork?2019-10-08T17:37:46-04:00

The type of competition (and your age) determines if you need medical and lab tests done.

Full Contact Judged Competition: A Full Contact contest in which judges are present, and one contestant may be declared a winner. This match would affect an athlete’s Class progression as a win, loss, or draw.

Full Contact Exhibition (FC Exh): A Full Contact contest in which no judges are present, and no contestant is declared a winner. Athletes who do FC Exh still compete with full force, displaying technique and power. This match affects an athlete’s Class progression but not as a win or loss. For example, an athlete with 2 wins and  2 FC Exh has a record that looks like 2-0-0, 2 Exh, and is in B class.

Light Contact Exhibition (LC Exh): A Light Contact contest in which no judges are present, and no contestant is declared a winner. This does not affect an athlete’s Class progression. But should still be disclosed in an athlete’s record.

 

See all definitions at the Provincial Competition Ruleset and the Exhibition Competition Ruleset

LIGHT CONTACT The use of controlled techniques. No contact to the head is permitted, nor is any contact which may or is intended to result in harm.

FULL CONTACT The purposeful use of physical force, including contact which does not meet the definition of Light Contact.

How do I know my Coach profile is valid?2019-09-06T12:53:05-04:00

When you receive confirmation emails that your MTO Online Passport is updated, do check!

Find your profile on the Coach Directory and click on your name to pull up the profile. If you can’t find it, search for only the first name or only the last name in the search box.

Here’s what you need to check if you’re a Coach:

A) Expiry Date

Make sure the expiry date is December 31 of the current year you’ve registered in.
Example, if I register at any time in 2019, the expiry date should be Dec 31, 2019. If I register at any point in 2020, the expiry date should be Dec 31, 2020.

B) Background Check

Depending on your date of birth, the background check you get differs. This is explained at this link.

  • Vulnerable Sector Verification must say either “E-PIC Only” or “On File”. If it is blank or says ”not on file”, then passport is not valid
  •  Background Check Expiry should not expire before the event day you’re participating in. Example, if you are cornering at an event on November 2, 2019 but the background check expiry date is September 30, 2019, then it is invalid. Expiry dates are 12 months from when the documents are dated.

C) Concussion Safety 

Must be ”On File” for 2019.

This indicates a coach has reviewed Concussion Awareness and Prevention Resources. If you haven’t done so yet, please review the information and sign-off on it at https://muaythaiontario.org/documents/concussions-awareness-for-coaches-officials/

This field will be removed at the start of 2020.

This was a new mandatory requirement for all members of Provincial Sport Organizations with Rowan’s Law coming into effect on July 1, 2019: https://muaythaiontario.org/rowanslaw/

 

How do I know my Athlete profile is valid for competition?2019-10-08T17:37:40-04:00

When you receive confirmation emails that your MTO Online Passport is updated, do check! There are different requirements for the type of competition you’re participating in.

Understanding your MTO Online Passport for Athletes:

A) Expiry Date
Make sure the expiry date is December 31 of the current year you’ve registered in.
Example, if I register at any time in 2019, the expiry date should be Dec 31, 2019. If I register at any point in 2020, the expiry date should be Dec 31, 2020.

B) Medical Expiry Date
This is your Annual Medical Declaration form. The expiry date is 12 months after it was dated by the physician. Only stamped medicals are valid.

Example, an athlete’s medical expiry date is Oct 2, 2018, meaning the physician dated the medical on Oct 2, 2017.

C) Lab Test Expiry Date
This expiry date is bundled from the three required lab tests as stated on the Annual Medical Declaration form. The earliest dated test out of the three is used as reference for the expiry date. Expiry date is 12 months from when it was dated.

 Example: If HIV and Hepatitis B Surface Antigen were completed in June 2018, but Hepatitis C was completed October 2018, the expiry date for these three tests becomes June 2019 as it’s the earliest dated test.

Tests required: HIV Antibody (HIVAb), Hepatitis B Surface Antigen (HBsAg), Hepatitis C Antibody (HCVAb).The expiry date will only be updated once all three test results are valid.
