We wish to bring to the attention of all K1 Rules fighters that the WAKO Board have decided to cancel its presentation in the 2013 World Combat Games and to replace it with the Low-Kick style.

The reason is that the WAKO Board want to defend the original styles of Kickboxing.

In other words, St.Petersburg’s Combat Games will show the same styles we had in Beijing in 2010.

We are sorry for those of you who dreamed to go to Russia, but we truly believe of preserving the interests of Kickboxing in general.

More detailed information will follow soon, but in the next Continental Championships scheduled in Turkey and Romania for Europe, in Madagascar for Africa, in Brasil for the Pan American countries and in Jordan for Asian countries, SEMI CONTACT, FULL CONTACT and LOW-KICK are the styles which will qualify fighters for the 2013 World Combat Games.
