MTO's goal is to unite the community and give owners access to the vendors and service providers. Often it's difficult for a single club to secure pricing with limited resources. We want vendors and providers eager to see us as a community of like-minded people. In addition, your club will be listed among other MTO-registered clubs on the Club Directory.
We are eager to help the Muaythai community in Ontario grow. The goal is to position the club owners as leaders in the Martial Arts throughout all of Ontario.
Seminars will be delivered throughout the year ranging in topics. Examples are: business leadership, securing credit, and club management techniques, and skill-specific training for coaches and instructors.
Muaythai is forged in battle and tested regularly in the ring. There will be at least one (1) tournament per year and weekly or monthly events promoted by club owners like you, sanctioned by Muaythai Ontario. Muaythai Ontario enables access to National and International Championships through direct affiliations with: the National Organization, Muaythai Canada (MTC), and the International Federation of Muaythai Amateur (IFMA).
*If this is your club's first time participating in MTO competition the membership fee is deferred until your second event. Please proceed with the application as normal.
