From today’s perspective, eight nations from Latin America will come to Egypt.

The largest team will likely come from Argentina.

Our WKF CHILE President Alejandro CONCHA and his partner Rodrigo Miño are also doing an excellent job in Santiago and are preparing a strong team for Cairo.

European Championships in Baia Mare, Romania

WKF EUROPEAN officials

WKF ROMANIA president Mr. Florin MINA was our host for the last European Championships in Baia Mare.

Although other championships were held in Europe in the same week, we were able to welcome 18 nations in Baia Mare. More than 300 participants went over the scales, together with the multiple and double starts we had over 500 fights.

The best teams were Romania, ahead of France and Austria.

As always, the performance in the ring sport was as expected high. Also in tatami sport there were great Semi contact fights. The strongest discipline was once again kick-light.
