Well, you must be wondering – just who is WAKO?

Well, today, we will shed some light on them. Of course, I am sure some of you would have already found out about them.

For the rest who want to find out more about WAKO, read on:

The World Association of Kickboxing Organisations (WAKO) was started in Europe in 1976 by Georg Bruckner — from Berlin — considered a revolutionary in the world of martial arts, who closed the gap between traditional karate and full-contact karate.

Since 1984, WAKO has been led by Italy’s Ennio Falsoni , a former WUKO (World Union of Karate-Do Organizations) world karate championship runner-up (1972), who had a more “open” mind and fewer preconceptions, making WAKO the most highly recognised amateur federation in Kickboxing.

Over the past 29 years, WAKO added new styles to the original two styles of Karate – semi- and full-contact, while at the same time refining its rules and regulations.

Today, WAKO counts 5 MILLION practitioners as members, and no less than 8,000 clubs across the globe, and authorises over 1,000 events a year. Officially recognised by Sportaccord (the former GAISF — General Association of International Sports Federations) and the OCA(Olympic Council of Asia), and a member of WADA (World Anti-Doping Agency), WAKO is the sole governing body for Kickboxing sport in the world.

Active Red is the appointed Singapore Representative for the World Association of Kickboxing Organisations (WAKO) – the sole governing body for Kickboxing sport in the world.
