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 / Uganda

Of these, unfortunately, we only have just seven (!) international licensed female officials.

Adriana TATU / Romania

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.


It’s in your hands and we just want

more female licensed officials
