“It is our members federations’ positive reaction to adversity, not the adversity itself that determines how our sport will grow in the future and it will grow, of that I am sure. No matter how difficult the situation may appear, it does not entirely own us. It can’t take away our freedom to respond, our power to act, our passion and commitment for and to our sport. We will prevail, we are WAKO and WAKO is Kickboxing. I congratulate to all on the International Kickboxing Day”.

Roy Baker, WAKO President
