The excellent work developed by the master Ednaldo Lustosa, transformed the state of Tocantins, in the northern region of Brazil, into one of the greatest powers of kickboxing and martial arts in Brazil.
For Master Ednaldo, the involvement and participation of the entire Lustosa family has been a very important factor in this whole process. Tocantins holds for the first time a national championship of kickboxing and martial arts.

At the last World Congress in Andria in 2016, a change of rule was made at the request of several state presidents.
The IRC has adopted the rule change and now it is official after the European Championship in Greece.
The rule changes are:
In the WKF Amateur Thai Boxing is fought with elbows and knees also to the head (!). Therefore elbow protectors are also obligatory from now on. This means that also “spinning elbows” to head with eye contact are correct. Like jumped knees also to the head! The fighting time remains unchanged 3 × 2 minutes.
The application for changes to the MMA weight classes has not been granted, it remains as before.
The discipline CADETS in has been cancelled.
