The WKC World Championships are an annual martial arts competition where competitors from all over the world assemble to test their skills against the best of the best in their particular discipline. Martial Arts disciplines include, speed fighting (point and continuous sparring), kata (forms), weapons etc and are divided by age and/or weight class as appropriate. To be eligible to attend the world championships competitors must be selected to represent their country by their respective National Team President by competing at either National Championships, training camps or a series of regional tournaments. This ensures the WKC World Championships are truly the best of the best.

WKC World championships are conducted in a safe, family friendly environment, professionally officiated and organized, where attendees compete at a World Class level and lifelong friendships are made.
