WELCOME TO CAIRO 2021

Mr. Mohamed DESSOUKI


WKF MIDDLE EAST  director Mr. Mohamed DESSOUKI is putting all the team’s energies into the preparation for this upcoming amazing World Championship 2021, so that everything that is being offered in this great event becomes a flawless reality.
 
Mr. Desouki invite the World for the next WKF WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS 2021, October 18th to 24th.
 
Amazing City of Cairo in oriental Egypt is the host City.
 
 
 
So many African countries don´t need entry Visa for Egypt.
 

deadline September 30th


You will face first time in your life real Champions from e.g. Egypt, Uganda, Tanzania, South Africa, Congo, Algeria, Kenya, Tunisia and of course fighters from all over the World !
 
Just the weekend before WKF head office promote the annual World referee seminar in Cairo. 
 
Until today we have 51 country confirmations from all 6 continents. More than 300 fighters from 48 countries are already in !
 
Many competitors e.g. in Forms or in MMA and point fighting, a huge WKF CHINA team for Sanda will attend too.
 
Please note: Muay Thai in Egypt is in full Muay Thai rules, here many photos from the past …
 
 
 
Sport has no racial, social or political barriers,
 
which means that it is the perfect way for all kids, junior boys and girls
 
men and women, veterans and masters 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.
 
 
 
And if you don’t participate, the whole world will know! 
 
But be careful: not for internet champions 😉 
 
 
 
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.
 
Come to see charming City Cairo, friendly people, Pyramids and trip on the river Nil, 5000 Years of history, fair accommodation offers, excellent Arabic AND international food, famous fish meals, pastry and cakes and a real great World Championship in ancient Egypt.

Mr. Amir MOSADEGH, WKF IRAN and MMA division World president

 

WKF CHINA meets WKF IRAN, Wushu meets MMA

WKF IRAN president Mr. Amir MOSADEGH is our high respected WKF ASIA continental director.

On the last World meeting of board of directors 2018 in Argentina, the majority confirmed for Mr. Mosadegh as our WKF MMA division World president.

Best decision, than we had already Asian continental title in MMA in Thailand (!) and few other MMA titles in Asia.

 

Are you tough enough ? USA needs YOU

In the last World Championships 2018 in Buenos Aires, WKF IRAN fighters were so strong and successfully in ring sport division. Almost all fights end by KO !

WKF World 2021

Mr. Mosadegh was like an ambassador for his country, and many people was surprised about his nice and friendly style.

And from 8 fighters in Low kick division, Iran had one fighter in any weigh category – WKF IRAN won seven Gold and one Silver medal !!!

Furthermore Mr. Mosadegh had many meetings with other WKF Asian presidents. A very good cooperation for future projects started with e.g. WKF WUSHU & SANDA division World president Sifu YAN Dinan

For the World Championships in Egypt 18th to 24th October 2021 many tough Iranian Champions will come to challenge all our African teams  and “the rest of the World”. 

In MMA as well as in ring sport, of course, male and females !

 

“We would like to challenge few US Champions, in a fair play fight” 

 

Mr. Mosadegh said. No POLITICS – just sport !

 

WKF IRAN could be again one of the biggest and strongest team.

Just the weekend before is the annual World referee seminar , to extend or get WKF official license.  Last Year in Romania 70 referees attended from 35 countries !

Overview of our WKF forms or Kata discipline in Cairo

Posted by WKF head office on August 22nd, 2021

 

Dear friends in martial arts!

Respected WKF country presidents!

 

WKF JAPANESE KATA LIST

WKF KOREAN FORMEN LIST

As everybody know, the World Championship is coming up in Egypt in October.

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 so far and wish all of us many traditional participants and a successful 

World Championship in Cairo, Egypt.
