An athlete’s Class is considered across all full contact, striking based combative sports contests.
Example: Muaythai, Kickboxing, Sanshou, MMA, Boxing, etc.
All levels of competition are considered, including but not limited to judged contests, demonstrations, smokers, and exhibitions.
Athletes with considerable experience outside of Muaythai may require additional review by a Technical Committee before determining the appropriate experience class for competition.
Athletes with professional experience may only compete in A Class and above, however athletes with some semi-professional experience (e.g. a low level fight in Thailand) may submit a request to compete in B Class should they be within the 9 contest limit.
Please refer to Rule 4 for definitions of a “contest” and “full contact”.
