The World Kungfu Championships (WKFC) is the official world-level sport-for-all event that is hosted by the International Wushu Federation. First held in 2004, the WKFC takes place biennially and features thousands of competitors in all age groups competing in a wide variety of events. This event provides an excellent platform for practitioners of all ages and varying skill levels within all traditional kungfu styles to foster understanding through skill and cultural exchanges. With a spirit of interaction, the event aims to build friendships and interest in the practice of kungfu (traditional wushu).
The last WKFC, which was held in Emeishan in 2019, had the biggest US team to date with over 200 athletes and 500 delegation members. We would love to continue the trend and send a US team that is just as big this year! Kungfu Team members who got on the team in 2022 and 2023 are eligible to participate in the 9th WKFC.
