Posted by Office on September 1st, 2021

WKF World elite referees 2018, World Championships in Argentina

Mohamed DESSOUKI and Fritz EXENBERGER in Cairo

At the World Congress in Andria in 2016, a change of rule was made at the request of several WKF country 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.
