The WKC (original & best) 13’th World Karate & Kickboxing Championships
WKC Ireland is committed to the positive development of Martial Arts in Ireland both through sporting events and teaching. Competitor’s safety, spectator’s enjoyment and the public’s perception of events is a priority in that development. The selection of Team Ireland is based on these commitments.
Our goal is to hold a National selection tournament on an annual basis in order to select the best competitors for Team Ireland.
In the absence of a National qualifying tournament the selection of Team Ireland will be based on a competitor’s entry and achievement at International WKC events and Irish open national events.
Points will be awarded for both entry to events and results.
With the exception of Kata competitor’s can only qualify for the event for which they have received their points.
Since Kata can be made up of several varying teams and individual events at the World Championships which may not be available at national level, team selection will be based on individual entry/results and performances as determined by the WKC Ireland officials.
Competitors who have not already done so should declare their interest in team selection by contacting us at email@example.com. Securing the qualifying points for selection does not automatically give a competitor entry to the World Championships, terms and conditions also apply.
Past competitors who wish to compete at the 2023 Worlds should note the entry requirements here.
