The seminar room was full of interested participants with Q&A at the end for audience to understand clearly about the curriculum.

The second program, launched on 18 August, was the first training of iMAES curriculum from 3 famous Khru Muaythai, Master Meuangchai Kittikasem, Master Chalee Khuntaree, and Master Dr. Chao Wathayotha.Three masters divided participants into 3 groups and started to train Muaythai with iMAES curriculum in 3 separate groups. Several participants were amazed with techniques that they learned from these masters and had never known before. Masters informed them that those master techniques were already categorized in 9 khans (levels) with over hundreds of animated movements in iMAES curriculum so those who adopted iMAES can learn Muaythai faster and a lot easier. All 3 masters got a big round of applause at the end of the training.
