Overview of our WKF forms or Kata discipline 2022

Posted by WKF head office on January 15th, 2022

 

Dear friends in martial arts!

Respected WKF country presidents!

 

WKF JAPANESE KATA LIST

WKF KOREAN FORMEN LIST

As everybody know, next World Championship 2024 is coming up in France.

Today we have 14 categories for forms/Kata/poomse/Hyong/creative   etc.

To avoid any misunderstandings on the tatami or mat, I would like to ask you kindly one more time to read carefully the online WKF rule book for forms.

To see what is a traditional form, have a look here in two lists of forms. 

What are the dress codes?

When does the timer start e.g. for traditional forms with and without weapons ?

Any traditional form / Kata etc. can be customized, but it still has to be recognizable.

From our official WKF recognized List and a traditional Japanese or Korean form or Kata!

In creative and freestyle:  also compiled (with parts of existing forms) form using traditional techniques is permitted.

What is the time limit in creative forms or soft style forms?

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.

 

Budo weapons for forms 1

Budo weapons for forms 2

 

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 online forms rule book , available in 4 languages!

There you will find exactly what is a traditional form, where is which time limit, what is a creative form and so on.

I thank you for the cooperation and wish all of us many traditional participants and a successful 2022

Many tough WKF European Champions are ready to Challenge US fighters 2021 at home in USA !

Posted by WKF head office on January 10th, 2022

WKF is very strong in Europe

US World Champion Mike SHEPPARD

WKF EUROPE head office ask for the following publication update:

 

In the past many US guys fought in Europe vs. local or European Champions for WKF titles, in K-1 style as well as in Muay Thai!

With less success, because very often their fighter profile was incorrect.

Just Heavyweight Mike SHEPPARD from Palestine beat the Russian Champion in Moscow by KO! Mike fought also in Australia for the IKF  heavy weight World title and beat Australian Robert WILESMITH badly by Knock-out!

Honor and respect, Mike !!!

 

In the world outside USA real pro have 50 and more ring sport amateur fights, before the move on to real professional ring sport.

NO fighter with e.g. just 10 fights get a chance to fight for WKF pro titles, and NO old guy with 35 Years plus. This is outside USA impossible.

Please note – e.g.Russian Champions start as juniors and when they became 20 Years old, they can have more than 100 (!) fights. Real international fights in ring sport, we are not talking about tatami point fighting!

 

ANDWKF- World Kickboxing Federation – is a world wide sanctioning body on 6 continents in more than 140 countries.

Not a private promoter company, select or decide who and where, which champions fight for their XYZ company titles !

 

AND – US federal state vs. US federal state World title in any federation – has absolute NO VALUE outside USA !

 

 

If you never have fought abroad outside, facing the best fighter in the World rankings, from Europe, Africa, Latin America or Asia –

 

YOU ARE NOT A WORLD CHAMPION !!!

 

Our European Champions are bored about! You don´t belief this facts ?

Invite a selected team from Europe, we help with 7 male / female fighters at any time.
