Dear friends in sport,
WKF ARGENTINA is putting all the team’s energies into the preparation for this upcoming championship, so that everything that is being offered in this great event becomes a flawless reality.
Each athlete, nonstop but at their own pace, goes around the world seeking in different places for new sportive experiences that will allow them to reach a personal fulfilment. Because of this, our organization, wishes to deliver an opportunity to those who are looking for this sort of experiences and achievements.
We look forward to having every country from the WKF family -from competitors to professors, judges, trainers and athlete’s families- joining in this intense competition, seizing as well the opportunity to meet our local landscapes and incredible sightseeing places of our beautiful country, given the favourable exchange rate of our currency.
Our organization is deeply submerged in addressing the best in us to provide you with a great proposal as this next Championship in Argentina is aiming to be, focusing on creating a joyful space to bind, making the experience an unforgettable collective experience along together with all of our brothers from foreign lands.

At the last World Congress in Andria in 2016, a change of rule was made at the request of several state presidents.
The IRC has adopted the rule change and now it is official after the European Championship in Greece.
The rule changes are:
In the WKF Amateur Thai Boxing is fought with elbows and knees also to the head (!). Therefore elbow protectors are also obligatory from now on.
This means that also “spinning elbows” to head with eye contact are correct. Like jumped knees also to the head! The fighting time remains unchanged 3 × 2 minutes.
The discipline CADETS in has been cancelled.
