World Kickboxing Federation appoints Andy Hopwood as President of the UK

Our Founder & Chief Instructor Andy Hopwood has recently been appointed President of the UK for the World Kickboxing Federation (WKF), so Bromsgrove is set to become the UK’s Head Quarters for kickboxing and MMA.

The WKF was originally formed in 1964 in Chicago USA and today has more than 140 member countries. The organisation promotes all aspects of competitive martial arts from semi-contact to MMA; from amateur to professional levels with National, Continental and World titles fought for at all weights in all styles.

Andy says “My first objective is to appoint new officials in the home nations and then to work with promoters to organise amateur and professional events. However, my most important task this year is to put together a strong team of fighters to represent the UK at the World Championships in Argentina in November.”

He adds “We will also be hosting international competitions and travelling across Europe to events to prepare and ensure our team are among the top contenders.”

The WKF UK will be working across the country, looking for dedicated and enthusiastic fighters, coaches, sponsors and officials to get involved with the push for UK success at the Buenos Aires Championships later in the year.
