BERMUDA: Bermuda Karate Institute

PORTUGAL: FPKMT (Federacao Portuguesa de Kickboxing e Muay Thai)


The above mentioned countries have completely lost any right as members of WAKO, so accordingly no support engagement or interactions with these federations that are now outside WAKO is allowed going forward, as they have lost all their rights.
