上週六(10/19)本會有幸能邀請亞洲業餘泰拳總會秘書長 Mervyn Tan 蒞臨本會位
Last Saturday, CTMA was honored to invite General Secretary of FAMA Mr. Mervyn Tan to our headquarter in Tianmu.
Mr. Tan not only came to visit Chinese Taipei Olympic Committee but also made his effort to visit us at headquarter of Chinese Taipei Muaythai Association to have a meeting with our president and general secretary. Mr. Tan pointed out that by the promotion of our president, more and more people devoted themselves to train in Muaythai and estimated that Taiwan has a great chance to host Asian Championships in Taiwan in just a few years.
加坡興盛的契機,是因為當時知名電視頻道 AXN 到新加坡拍攝泰拳訓練的實境
節目「The Challenger」,當時的製作人,同時也是現任 IFMA 秘書長 Stephan Fox
Mr. Tan shared his experience of promoting Muaythai in Singapore, mentioned that the reason why Muaythai is now a popular combat sport in Singapore was because of a TV program called “the Challenger” produced by a famous TV channel AXN. With the help of Mr. Tan, the producer, who is now the general secretary of IFMA, Stephan Fox successfully cooperated with the Singapore government for the shooting schedule of the program. Recorded at a beach, with a great chance of exposure, especially the first time people see the impact of athletes landing their kicks and punches on Thai pads, the show successfully attracted thousands of curious onlookers. Since then, Muaythai spread its seeds to develop in Singapore.
內,能夠在台灣舉辦亞洲錦標賽,屆時將有超過 20 餘國代表隊以及 200 名以上
After the meeting, Mr. Tan approved our president’s effort in promoting Muaythai in Taiwan and showed his gratefulness by awarding us with a certificate of appreciation and a hard cover edition of “History of Muaythai” published by Department of Physical Education of Thailand. Mr. Tan hoped that in the near future, Taiwan will have the ability to host Asian Championships. By then, over 20 delegations from all around Asia and over 200 athletes will come to Taiwan. It will definitely be a great chance for our citizens to see such high-level Muaythai competitions and to meet athletes from world power countries like Thailand, Vietnam and Kazakhstan.
今年度亞洲泰拳錦標賽將於 12/16-22 在阿布達比舉行,本會理事長將率隊前往參賽,並參加亞洲業餘泰拳總會年度會議。
The 2019 Asian Muaythai Championships will be hosted in Abu Dhabi from December 16th to 22nd. Our president will lead our delegation to the event and also attend the annual general meeting of FAMA.
