Giant milestone for Wako Australia
NSO (National Sporting Organisation) gained recognition for Kickboxing by Sport Australia
This is a GIANT milestone for WAKO Australia, its members are able to access local and state grants. It also allows access to the AIS and other facilities and education platforms.
The biggest achievement for WAKO AUSTRALIA is the situation it leaves the SPORT of Kickboxing in the eyes of Federal and State level Government and ministries.
Up to this point the Sport of Kickboxing was not recognised as an OFFICIAL sport by Federal Government, due to historical and current bodies not meeting any of the criteria set forth by SPORT AUSTRALIA.
A lot of this is down to the pathway system, with WAKO AUSTRALIA being the NF – National Federation to represent WAKO-IF.
