Greetings from the World President …

Posted by WKF head office on November 3rd, 2019

Fritz EXENBERGER, WKF World president / CEO

 

Dear friends in sport,

respected WKF presidents,

السلام عليكم

 

Welcome to Cairo – Welcome to Egypt

WKF AFRICA continental federation

it’s a pleasure and honor for me to to welcome all of our members, fighters, officials, country presidents and supporters to our next World Championships in Cairo, first time in history of our sport on the African continent.

Never before was ever any Amateur World Championship in Kickboxing in all disciplines, for kids and youth under 18 years, for all male and female – in this size and importance – in Africa !

No federation ever has risked this step.

Our WKF board has now awarded this World Championship to Egypt at the last World Congress 2018 in Buenos Aires.

Responsible for the perfect realization is our WKF Middle East Director Mr. Mohamed DESSOUKI.

 

It is interesting to see how the World is getting ever more closer. Our last amazing World Championships 2018 in wonderful and charming Buenos Aires in Argentina is the prove.

Mr. Carlos SUAREZ and his team probably have organized the best World Championships. For that we would like to thank Mr. Suarez and Mr. Cristian BOSCH again.

Today WKF has 142 member countries all over the World on 6 continents. Some of them are very strong and busy, other countries have to work harder. In Cairo will be new elections for the African board of directors.

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. Referees can not be in duty by us without an official WKF license, and without WKF fighter license is no fight.
 
 
 
 
is helpfully and will make registration easy to use and very functional.
 
 
On request only, our presidents will get access and password, to register, change, delete or just read. This is possible just until the deadline, after that this gate is closed, no later entries possible
 
WKF head office expect many countries from all over the World. Many competitors in all WKF disciplines, 14 Forms divisions and Semi contact , Light contact and kick-light on Tatami, ring sport in 4 disciplines, MMA and Chinese boxing Sanda. Many so strong Latin American countries confirmed already to come to Cairo, as well as Australian, European and Asian countries. Everybody want to challenge all African countries at home.
 

last World referee seminar in Romania 2019

 
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 Cairo, OCTOBER 19th – 26TH, 2020.

 
 
 
 
 

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.

 
 

World Championships 2022

European Championships 2021

I hope that the 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 you again 2020 first time in history in Egypt,

and all European countries 2021 in Rotterdam / Spijkenisse!

 

yours in sport
