World Kickboxing Network (WKN) – the largest kickboxing organization adds two more events to its busy schedule.
The WKN keeps the tradition of being the most active and prestigious kickboxing sanctioning body. Only in September four championship events were held in Colombia, France, Northern Ireland and Poland. In October we are in Slovakia to witness Simply The Best fight night. It is followed by Ganryujima martial arts show in Japan. France, Belgium and Poland accommodate international kickboxing in November and December.
The schedule above is now topped up by two more happenings in Cyprus and Greece.

National title bouts as well as rating contests feature on the card. Christodoulou launched Uppercut series in 2011.
