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.

History has shown nothing is set in stone.


As the world know – our next World referee seminar will be held October 2021 in Cairo, Egypt,  just the weekend before the WKF World Championships.

The next but one World referee seminar will be held in October 2022 in Hainan, the weekend just before the World Championships in China 2022 .

Without valid WKF license you are not an official in our World Kickboxing Federation!!

Today WKF has more than 100 international licensed referees on 6 continents. Patrizia APOLOT from Kampala in Uganda is the one and only female WKF official referee from the African continent!



Of these, unfortunately, we only have


SEVEN WORLD CLASS female officials

Like all knowledge, more and more strong female

champions and athletes are fighting

Our executive board therefore emphatically requests all WKF

country presidents to send more female referees to the seminar in Egypt in October 2021


It’s in your hands …


we just need


more African female officials in our WKF
