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 from JULY 1st just until the deadline October 20th 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.
