European Muaythai Federation is a representative democracy, comprised of 53 national muaythai associations, and is itself recognised by IFMA as one of six continental federations. The organisation of the administration of muaythai is based on a pyramid system of regulations, with IFMA the world governing body, EMF the European governing body and national muaythai associations the governing bodies at domestic level.
