Jackie Chan is no doubt one of the most recognisable and influential martial art cinematic personalities in the world, he has his star on the Hollywood walk of fame.

Jackie Chan is also not only an outstanding personality on the silver screen but he is also a true philanthropist and one of the top 10 most charitable celebrities in the world.

Jackie Chan is also an admirer of muaythai and has been at many muaythai events especially charitable ones. It was an honour for the IFMA muaythai superstars such as Yodsaenklai, Levin Atrem, Vahitov, Simon Marcus, Igor Liubchenko, Panupan, Tirapong, Arthur Kyshenko, Micheal Dicks, Fatima Pinto, Milja Heino, Valentina Shevchenko, Carl Lewis and so many others to witness Jackie opening the World Combat Games in 2010 where he took to the microphone to sing a ballad.

Events and the support from martial arts legends showcase again that IFMA and the WMC (the professional arm) are the sole governing body for muaythai.
