Khalid bin Hamad Al Khalifa, Advisor to President Bahrain Olympic Committee and Mr. Ahmed AlWazzan, President of Kickboxing Federation, the upcoming WAKO development workshop will be held in Bahrain from 18th to 20th March. It is great to see the development of Kickboxing in the region and in WAKO globally.
The entire focus of the weekend is the learning and sharing of best practice and hearing from subject matter experts, who have practical and repeatable experiences.
This is to allow us to grow and share practical experiences. This is part of the WAKO 5 years strategic development program as outlined by the president at the GA in 2021 and is a follow on of the previous Highly successful event in Istanbul, Turkey, in 2020. We are also hosting a Pan American event later in the year.
We have agreed with his HH Shaikh Khalid bin Hamad Al Khalifa to include a High Performance Coaching Development Workshop, in Full contact, Point Fighting, Light Contact and K1, where your coaches will have the opportunity to learn and share with an incredible line up of accomplished and capable coaches over the two days in four of the seven disciplines within WAKO. This two day course is free of charge.
