Pascal DELFOSSE, WKF director Frankophone

Bonjour,

Je me présente, je suis Pascal DELFOSSE, Président de la FKBDA (Fédération de kickboxing en France), membre de la WKF, et je viens d’être nommé directeur de la Francophonie au sein de la WKF.

2015 Francophone LogoLa Francophonie dans le monde via O.I.F. (Organisation internationale de la Francophonie) c’est 53 pays membres + 3 pays membres associés et 23 observateurs (l’équivalent du Commenwealth pour les pays Anglo-saxon).

Cette organisation est membre de l’ONU et du CIO, il existe d’ailleurs les jeux de la Francophonie (que j’espère intégré pour le kick boxing), et en France nous avons un Ministère de la Francophonie qui aide à l’organisation de rencontre entre pays membres.

Le but de la Francophonie à la WKF est de développer les échanges entre les pays de la Francophonie, que des nouveaux pays deviennent membres de la WKFvia nos échanges et nos contacts,d’organiser des nouvelles compétitions amateurs (championnat de la Francophonie tous les 2 ans) et des titres “ProAm” et “Pro” de la Francophonie, ouvrant ainsi plus de possibilités d’organisation de titres au sein de la WKF.

Actuellement nous avons 19 pays de la Francophonie qui sont membres de la WKF, ce qui laisse une grand marge de travail.

WKF Francophonie BeltJe fais appel à vous afin d’avoir la liste de vos champions nationaux qui pourraient entrer dans les classements de la Francophonie et de la WKF afin de pouvoir créer de vrais championnats crédibles et légitimes.

En pièce jointe un 1er classement “Pro-Am” fait à partir de Ranking “Pro-Am” WKF

Aucune fédération mondiale n’ont mis en place cela, c’est l’occasion pour nous d’être les premiers, et aussi de permettre une plus grande reconnaissance de la WKF.

Le 1er Championnat amateur de la Francophonie sera certainement organisé en France en mai 2017, et un 1er tournoi de la Francophonie sera certainement organisé en Mai 2016.
Une page FB à été ouverte: Francophonie WKF, afin de donner toutes les infos et faire vivre cette structure de la WKF, si vous avez des photos de votre équipe nationale en tenue, vous pouvez me les transmettre afin d’alimenter le site FB, et faire votre promotion, montrer également notre force.

Merci de votre attention, et j’espère une future collaboration épanouissante pour tous

Sportivement votre
