Future of Kickboxing - WAKO Singapore Kickboxing Coaches & Gearing towards IOC Recognition

About the Olympic Games

The modern Olympic Games or Olympics (French: Jeux olympiques) are leading international sporting events featuring summer and winter sports competitions in which thousands of athletes from around the world participate in a variety of competitions. The Olympic Games are considered the world's foremost sports competition with more than 200 nations participating. The Olympic Games are held every four years, with the Summer and Winter Games alternating by occurring every four years but two years apart. (reference: Wikipedia)

The Olympic Games is considered to be the ultimate end goal, and dream for every sport and athlete. Setting the stage as the highest level of competition in the world, to be able to compete in that level is truly remarkable.

IOC Recognition of WAKO - In the process

The process of attaining IOC (International Olympic Committee) recognition of WAKO (World Association of Kickboxing Organizations) is work in the pipeline. With the tremendous efforts of our President of WAKO, Prof. Dr. Borislav Pelevic, and his team, WAKO has achieved a few remarkable milestones in our journey to push for Kickboxing to be recognised as an official sport in the Olympic Games.

WAKO, a part of the IOC family, under the Auspices of AIMS

In 20th April 2016, WAKO became a part of the IOC family, under the auspices of AIMS.

A historical MoU has been signed between the IOC, represented by IOC President Dr. Thomas Bach and AIMS, represented by its counterpart Stephan Fox.

AIMS, the umbrella group of 23 international sport federations, which are members of SportAccord, now have the right to be included in the “Olympic Movement Directory”.
