UKMF Release 5-Step ‘Return To The Ring’ Roadmap

In an official statement released by the UKMF on 5th June 2020, a five-phase plan was laid out for the return of Muaythai activity in the UK.

In the statement, the United Kingdom Muay Thai Federation (UKMF) set out its cautious approach for the safety of its members and the public in the eager return to training.

The five-phase roadmap ‘Return to the Ring’ is to act as a guide for how Muaythai in the UK can get back on its feet, and will require sustained effort from all members to ensure the safety of all concerned and to maintain uninterrupted growth of grassroots Muaythai in the United Kingdom.

Phase 1: Stay Connected Online

Online training sessions and support as strict quarantine conditions imposed. ALL gym and training facilities closed with no private training sessions permitted.

Phase 2: Return to Training

Slight easing of restrictions to allow a limited number of participants to train outdoors whilst following strict social distancing and contact rules.

Phase 3: Re-opening of Gyms

Indoor activity permitted gradually over a set period.

Level 1 – No contact training
Level 2 – Limited contact training
Level 3 – Full contact training

At this point gyms should be operating as normal, albeit with special measure in place.

Phase 4: Return of Events (Interclubs and Matched Fights)

This phase will be implemented once there is mass testing, vaccinations, and health clearance from Local and National Departments. Participation may be limited initially and then relaxed once the risk levels fall further.

Phase 5: Return to Competition

The final phase will see the return of normal activities and operations and the full lifting of UK travel restrictions and conditions. This may apply when a mass vaccination has been carried out.
