Presented by Albert Ross, the amateur event is the inaugural championships held in the United Kingdom. The roster features adult and junior competitors battling it out in their respective age and weight classes. The teams from all over UK and abroad participate. The list of disciplines includes Full Contact Kickboxing, Oriental rules (K-1 style), Light Contact and Low Kick, also in light contact.

“We look forward to the first WKN British Open organised in Scotland. The concept of the amateur open tournament is to continue the development of sport, building a new generation,” said Stephane Cabrera, President of World Kickboxing Network. “We also plan to host WKN Open in Spain in the near future, which will be an international amateur MMA tournament.”

WKN British Open in Fraserburgh, Scotland precedes WKN World Cup 2019 in Auckland, New Zealand. The event scheduled for November 28-30 takes place at The Trusts Arena featuring kickboxing and mixed martial arts bouts with 30 trophies at stake.

In addition, last week the organization announced its return to Northern Ireland scheduled for October 26. The “made-in Prokick” event, billed as “Lord of the Ring”, takes place at Stormont Hotel in Belfast. The headline-bout features the representative of the country-host Johnny “Swift” Smith in defense of his WKN Intercontinental Welterweight title against Shuhei Sone of Japan.
