WFMC PRESS RELEASE
Still Owner and President
Wayne Edwards, CEO of WFMC
My Story -
By Wayne Edwards
In 2013 I became the WFMC England President. Was the only WFMC member Outside of Germany and Poland to regularly hold national WMFC squad training, National championships and bring teams of English champions to the World championships that were held 98% of the time in Germany.
By 2014 I ran team GB, and by 2020 the old owner and President Isa Akkus, plagued by health issues and inability to grow the association, passed on the association.
WFMC World Championships, which was mainly held in Germany lacked the recognition of Tournaments like WAKO as there were few national teams.

The Importance of being selective
Why There is a problem with attracting the right representatives?
The past president did what he needed to do. He aimed to make the association look bigger and worry about cleaning it up later. His goal was never to stay loyal to a representative but use them as a stepping stone.
The 2023 European Championships and aftermath
At the 2023 European Championships, it became evident that the association was still plagued by its outdated grassroots mentality. The German team had a leader who believed he was above the President due to his close ties with the founder’s old President. The German team’s head, Baki Hoxhaj, disregarded the licensing rule, despite the Championship organizers reducing the price by £15 to accommodate the new £15 licensing rule for all competitors. Full details of terms and conditions are found at https://www.kihapp.com/tournaments/10537-european-championships-2023
The German Baki Hoxhaj president promised to pay the fee later if we allowed his fighters to compete but abruptly left without bidding farewell once his competitors had competed.
Furthermore, the German head caused a massive uproar at the event claiming the title of best club at the European Championships. He even instructed his team members to steal the Grand Champion trophy, and they made several attempts to do so.
The organizers struggled to communicate to the team that the best club trophy was awarded to a club, not a country, as this was an open tournament. This riled up the German team, who jeered and chanted with the full support of their unprofessional leader.
Although anyone familiar with the Kihap tournament system at www.kihap.com could examine the results and understand the data, a group of convinced Germans, led by this individual, propagated misinformation, believing that the sky was red and the sea was yellow.

Aftermath of the European Championships and the Future of WFMC
After the European Championships, the previous president attempted, without any discussion, to reclaim WFMC. He disregarded the constitution, ignoring the agreed-upon handover. Isa Akkus’s integrity was worth nothing at this point. He was willing to endorse the Constitution when it suited him and, rather than follow procedure, attempted to rip it up without meeting, question or negotiation.
Mister Isa Akkus decided to attempt to steal my labour and significant investment and just shut me out of the World group and posted on the Facebook page I now own as if nothing had happened.
In the West, we say “no backsies,” Clear proof of passing the association on is written in stone in the constitution published on https://wfmchq.com/constitution/
and introduced at the 2020 World Assembly, which was recorded and shown above and can be seen on Youtube.
WFMC Facebook page ownership was also passed on to me.
Further Lessons From This Setbacks And WFMC Path Forward!
From these experiences, we have gained valuable insights that will guide our future actions. Firstly, we recognize the need to emphasize transparency, accountability, and adherence to the constitution within WFMC goes beyond the founder member and his close friends.
We will prioritize establishing a robust framework that ensures all fighters are licensed and that competitions are conducted according to clear rules and regulations.
Additionally, we have learned the significance of strong and ethical leadership. Moving forward, we intend to identify capable individuals who can effectively lead, ensuring the smooth running of events and fostering a positive environment for all participants.
Furthermore, we are committed to actively promoting and expanding the association beyond Poland, Germany, and Great Britain. We will seek opportunities to collaborate with representatives from other countries and look at joint-funded promotions, encouraging them to invest their efforts in growing the WFMC community worldwide. By fostering international relationships and establishing a solid network other than just small clubs, we aim to create a thriving global platform for martial arts enthusiasts.
