I have traveled to World Kubudo Conventions because some of the best Martial Artists in the world are there. World Conventions have encouraged me to develop in the Martial Arts and meet people who have the same passion. One thing I appreciate is that I can get out of my comfort zone and train in unfamiliar disciplines knowing that I am training with one of the best. I would recommend to any student and instructor to develop their skill in the martial arts by going to the World Convention 2018. Everyone you will meet knows something you don’t!

Attending a WKF Convention can change your life – for the better. You’ll get world-class martial arts training, visit interesting places and meet the most amazing people. My life and my martial arts have become richer from the experiences and the people I’ve met at WKF Conventions. Athens in 2018 is going to be phenomenal. My suggestion – don’t miss it!

I cannot express to you enough the importance in attending a WKF convention for your continued development not only as a martial artist, but as a person in general. You will without question have access to world-class teachers and trainers in the martial arts, but you will also have access to world class people who will quickly develop into world class friends for years to come…” WKF-Greece 2018 is an event not to miss” See you there

I always strive to find new techniques and teaching tools to better myself and my students! I have been attending the WKF conventions since its inception and it has opened the doors to the world for my team. I have had the privilege to share mats with prevalent and passionate instructors ( from world champion to UFC fighters). But is is much more than seminars and training camps, I have met incredible people who have become amazing friends and on / off the mats tutors!
