by Jill Diamond (2008-11-17)

The WBC has officially opened their arms to Female Muay Thai. It will now be sanctioned by the WBC and is being organized throughout the world. This brings us more promoters for those women who are interested in this sport.
I know some of you started in martial arts and kick boxing prior to our sanctioning women’s boxing. If this is something that interests you, please let me know, and also include your background and record in the sport, or one akin to it.
