Greetings from the President …

Posted by WKF head office on July 9th, 2017

Fritz EXENBERGER, WKF World president

Dear friends in sport,

respected WKF presidents,

 

it’s a pleasure and honour for me to to welcome all of our members, fighters, officials, country presidents and supporters to our next World Championships in Buenos Aires.

It is interesting to see how the World is getting ever more closer and  therefore, it is pleasing to see the World championships here in this wonderful and charming country.

WKF ARGENTINA president Mr. Carlos SUAREZ and and his team invite the World for the next WKF WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS 2018, November 5th -10th. Beautiful City of Buenos Aires in Argentina is the host City.
 
WKF head office expect many countries from all 6 continents. Many competitors in all WKF disciplines, Tatami, ring sport, MMA and Sanda.

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 you see there in Buenos Aires, November 2018.

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 the our WKF can continue to stride forwards with determination and a positive attitude in order to keep ourselves at the centre 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.

 

Hope to see all of you again in Argentina,

yours in sport

Fritz EXENBERGER

WKF World president
