The Thai Boxing Association Sanctioning Authority Muay Thai Classic 2010

By MikeLNg

The 2010 Muay Thai Classic Tournament is coming July 9-11, 2010.  Its always good to see amateurs provided an opportunity to grow and participate.  The event kicks off at the Holiday Inn Airport/Convention Center in Des Moines, IA. As of right now, it is modified rules, no elbows because of the 3-day nature of the event and for safety considerations. The Thai Boxing Association Sanctioning Authority(TBA-SA) is working  on finding some elbow pads that will stay on and allowing the more experienced boxers to use elbows but not in novice divisions.
