WKF HEAD OFFICE work very hard in cooperation with our IRC- “International rules committee” to train our international officials and referees, to answer protests and requests for the competition rules and to develop our various WKF rules.
To see what is a traditional form, have a look in the two lists of forms.
What are the dress codes? When does the timer start e.g. for traditional forms with and without weapons ? What is the time limit in creative forms or soft style forms?
Any traditional form may be adapted, it is still a traditional form. Also compiled (with parts of existing forms) form using traditional techniques is permitted.
All traditional Forms must be using traditional moves only. Any traditional Form / Kata / Pommse / Hyong etc. must resemble a traditional work, an adaptation will be acceptable if added moves are of a traditional nature.
Any so called “allstyle” form is not a traditional one!
For any creative forms is just the division creative forms with music, with and without weapon.
Once again I kindly ask you read the rule book for forms – available in 4 languages! There you will find exactly what is a traditional form, where is a time limit, what is a creative form and so on.
I want to thank you for co-operation and wish you a successful European Championship in Wels, Austria.
An excerpt from our WKF statutes valid over 20 Years
WKF’s aim was and always will be to enjoy the sport of Kickboxing and martial arts as an international sport, without discrimination over nationality, race or ethnic origin.
The WKF head office strongly believes in and upholds an Equal Rights Policy with all its members and those who wish to participate in it. With such a policy we here, at WKF wish to create a friendly and welcoming environment for everyone to enjoy the sport of Kickboxing and martial arts.
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
Выдержка из нашего устава WKF за более чем 20 лет!
Международная федерация кикбоксинга ( ВКФ / WKF) придерживается принципа равных возможностей для спортсменов независимо от пола, цвета кожи, религии, политических взглядов и места жительства.
В этом виде спорта нет расовых, социальных или политических барьеров, а это означает, что это идеальный путь для всех детей, взрослых, ветеранов и ремесленников к достижению потрясающих результатов, независимо от расы, вероисповедания или цвета кожи.
Возможность представлять свою страну на международном уровне во имя спорта, вероятно, является одним из величайших достижений человечества.
