Dear friends in sport,

respected European WKF presidents,

Servus in Österreich !

full invitation is here

it’s a pleasure and honor for me to to welcome all of our members, fighters, officials, European country presidents and supporters to our next European Championships in Wels, Austria.

Euro 2011

Eleven Years after the WKF European Championships 2011 in Vienna.

Again we have our Amateur European Championship in Kickboxing in all disciplines, for kids under 13 and youth under 18 years, for all male and female.

Responsible for the perfect realization is our WKF AUSTRIA president Mrs. Tanja HELML

Today WKF has more than 140 member countries all over the World on 6 continents. Some of them are very strong and busy, other countries have to work harder.

Today 31 national teams have confirmed their participation

in the European Championship:

Albania, Armenia, Belarus, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, England, Finland, France, Georgia, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Ireland, Moldova, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Russia, Scotland, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, Ukraine and Austria

WKF EUROPE continental federation

WKF EUROPE is just one of 6 continental federations in WKF World Federation, but by far the strongest. Fighter, officials and of course TOP promoters with most events in WKF are the result of real hard work.

Yes, some rival competitors say we are conservative, but in truth we are only in compliance with the regulations, without ifs and buts! Our WKF rules and regulations are online in 4 languages, easy to read for everyone. Also for download as PDF document.


Today WKF in the World  has many long time members, country presidents and friends for Years. But also strong and new country presidents are in our successfully team.
Time passes and over time, presidents also change! Fighters, Coach and officials respect the seriousness of the WKF, where every fighter is treated fairly.
On request only, our presidents will get access and password, to register online, change, delete or just read. Open since JULY 1st just until the deadline October 7th after that this gate is closed, no later entries possible! 
Referees can not be in duty by us without an official WKF license, and without WKF fighter license is no fight.
WKF head office expect in October 24th to 29th 2022 more than 25 countries from all over Europe. Many competitors in all WKF disciplines, 14 Forms divisions and Semi contact , Light contact and kick-light on Tatami, ring sport in 4 disciplines and MMA. 
main square and center in Wels
Just the weekend before is the upcoming annual
WKF World referee seminar
best chance to get or extend international Referee license as well. Each country must bring at least one WKF licensed referee or pay cash 250 .- Euro/USD deposit.
As the Nations of the World gather together with their national teams in this arena, to challenge their peers under the banner of sport to become the best of the best, we can only reflect on how far the WKF has progressed in the World. This is due to the tireless work and effort that has been put in by it’s members on a day to day basis.
The end result being this, that see you all there in Wels, OCTOBER 24th to 29th, 2022.

Sport has no racial, social or political barriers, which means that it is the perfect way for all men and women, boys and girls to achieve amazing results, regardless of race, creed or colour.

The opportunity to represent one’s country in the name of sport at an international level is probably one of  the greatest achievements an individual can make.

The pressure that the competitors have at this level is enormous, and goes far beyond normal physical endurance.

To win, especially at such a high level, competitors will have to tap into inner resources that their years of training will have prepared them for.

I hope that our WKF can continue to stride forwards with determination and a positive attitude in order to keep ourselves at the center of the stage for martial arts. We can only stay on top with the help of our representatives and members such as yourselves, for which I thank you.

See all of our best European male and female fighters again 2022 in Austria.

yours in sport
