The AMTJRA became the first established organization for Officials of Muay Thai outside of Thailand and was given credit by the BTBC (British Thai Boxing Council) of England and Europe. The BTBC quickly followed suit setting up their own version of Judge and Referee organization 'BAMTO', (British Association of Muay Thai Officials), following a similar format of the AMTJRA which was officially recognized by Thailand.
The AMTJRA was accepted as a member of the IMTA (International Muay Thai Association) of Bangkok, Thailand in 1993 and became a member of the ABC, (Association of Boxing Commissioners) of the United States in 1994, and became a member of the AMTAT, (Amateur Muay Thai Association of Thailand), the IFMA, (International Federation of Muay Association) and the WMTC, (World Muay Thai Council) of Bangkok, Thailand in 1995. The joint union between the AMTJRA and the USMTA has become Internationally recognized as the officiating and governing body for American Muay Thai throughout the World.
