Dear WAKO Friends,

Not so long ago, it seemed impossible due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but now it has become reality: after skipping one long year, we are able to organize once more the Budapest WAKO Kickboxing World Cup in 2021.

The time lost due to the pandemic was quite a lot and it was a difficult period for everyone to be without competitions. However, we were hoping that the time would come when we could welcome the best kickboxers of the world in the Hungarian capital once again.

This will be the 26th World Cup and for the fifth year in a row, Budapest is the host. The Hungarian Kickboxing Federation is happy and proud to host the first World Cup after the pandemic. We will do our best to organize an unforgettable and high-quality competition for the participating athletes, coaches and spectators.

I can assure you that we always keep safety in mind and we will pay maximum attention to the health risks as well.
We hope that our competition will help prepare for the world championship, and that everyone can preserve their health while gaining competitive experience.
We are preparing a high-quality, well-organized World Cup in Budapest that complies fully with the COVID protocol.
We hope that as many of you as possible will come to Budapest. Let us make this a great competition together!
We are looking forward to welcoming you here!

Yours sincerely,

Peter Galambos
