FOR ALL EUROPEAN COUNTRIES
Dear friends in sport,
respected European WKF presidents,
Servus in Österreich !
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.
Eleven Years after the WKF European Championships in Vienna 2011.
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 23 National teams have confirmed their participation in the European Championship:
Albania, Armenia, Belarus, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, England, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Russia, Slovakia, Spain, Switzerland, Turkey, Ukraine and of course Austria.
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.
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
WKF World president / CEO
