MESSAGE OF PRESIDENT

Those who missed the World Championships in Poland were certainly unlucky, as WUKF reported that it was the best tournament ever held. The modern, brand-new sports hall, the streaming of all events in HD, the transfers in time, the official dinner and the farewell party were all at the highest standard. The organizers of the next WUKF events seem to be very worried as the Polish organizer, Mr. Pawel Bombolewski raised the WUKF standard to a very high standards.

However, knowing their competence I am not worried, and I am sure that they meet this excellent level of standards. This is the goal of WUKF, to always deliver "better and better events".


WUKF in Poland consisted of: 57 federations from 36 countries, 1241 athletes, 80 referees and 176 coaches. New strong federations from USA, Afghanistan, Nepal and Azerbaijan registered their teams for the first time in WUKF events, raising the level of the competition, which was fantastic to see.


We had some special guests at Szczecin that honored our event: Mr. Lech Walesa, former Polish President and Nobel Prize winner, participated at the open ceremony saluting the athletes, coaches, referees and presidents accompanied by the City Mayor of Szczecin, Mr. Piotr Krzystek. Mr. Richard Jorgensen, the ITKF and UWK president joined our event together with Mr. Vladimir Jorga, ITKF and UWK Vice-president, a very well-known Karate legend. They promoted the new umbrella federation that will change the world of Karate in a short time, establishing new friendships with WUKF members.


In the next year, the next WUKF events will be divided between Belgium and Brazil. The Children, Cadets and Juniors will go to Herstal, a venue that held successful Seniors event in 2008, and both the Juniors and Seniors will have the chance to visit the amazing Sao Paulo, Brazil for the United World Karate first World Championship. WUKF will be there with the strongest team.
