Posted by Office on May 25th, 2017

Mezinárodní WKF rozhodčí v Řecku

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.

 

Mr. Florin MINA WKF ROMANIA president

The application for changes to the MMA weight classes has not been granted, it remains as before.

The discipline CADETS in has been cancelled.

date 21st to 26th October 2019 !
