The WKF (World Kickboxing Federation) was the “Biggest” and most “Reputable” Kickboxing, MMA and Martial Arts Sanctioning Bodies in the world today. But what is behind the scenes, the “Truth” is not told, with “Backyard Deals”, “Fake” Representatives, “Fraud” and “Titles Stripped” for no reason other than “Personal gain” and “Money Deals”. But “What is the REAL TRUTH” of the WKF globally? Who really owns the “Registered” companies, the “Rights”, the “Copyrights”, the “WKF Name” throughout the world? Let’s look at the “FACTS” and let the world know the “TRUTH”:
THE BIRTH OF THE WKF (World Kickboxing Federation):
In 1976, Howard Hanson, a Shorin Ryu Karate black belt and student of Mike Stone, created his own group, WKA (WORLD KICKBOXING ASSOCIATION). At first the group had many successes and achievements, it even developed its regulations on low kicks in the sport. It gave way to champions like Fred Royers, Ronnie Green and Rob Kaman. Later in 1991 when WKA was sold to Canadian Dale Floyd, the group saw a gradual disintegration in its activity of events. At the time when Paul Ingram (England) took control of the Association and established it’s new headquarters in the United Kingdom, some important members began to leave, although it was seen as the second most important professional Sanctioning association for Kickboxing internationally.
On July 16th 1986, ISKA was formed as a result of the many legal problems PKA was facing. The International Sports Kickboxing Association was founded by 5 promoters and PKA executives who had united to form this new association. the promoters were; Tony Thompson, John Worley, Karyn Turner, Mike Sawyer & Scott Coker. The associations glowing success attracted many of the remaining PKA members, who soon joined ISKA’s growing success. A major boost to the association’s success was the broadcasting of many of its championships on EPSN television network. In more recent years the association has been headed by Olivier Muller, who didn’t stay in power for long. ISKA was soon returned to the American promoters – headed by Mike Sawyer (USA).
In August 2000 the WKF’s official website was launched, under the direction of its President Talal Takkoush. See his current WKF Official website www.wkfkickboxing.com. This gave a great boost to WKF as it meant that it became internationally recognised and it also gave instant news updates about the latest Kickboxing events taking place worldwide. The website is full of information about WKF, Rules and Ratings, plus all you would want to know about Kickboxing.
WKF’s main aim was and always will be to enjoy the Sport of Kickboxing as an international sport, without discrimination over nationality, race or ethnic origin. The WKF committee strongly believed in and uphold an Equal Rights Policy with all its members and those who wish to participate in it. With such a policy we here, at WKF wish to create a friendly and welcoming environment for everyone to enjoy the sport of KICKBOXING.
Now “delusional” Austrian “Fat Boy” Mr Fritz Exenberger will tell you that the (WKF) World Kickboxing Federation was founded in the USA in 1963, and in 2011 he became the C.E.O. World Director. But this is far from the “Truth”. The WKF was established in London, England in February 1987 by its founder President Mr Talal Takkoush. He boasts a great deal of knowledge and experience in the sport of Kickboxing, is highly qualified having gained many certificates and awards from various awarding bodies. In March 1987 the High Committee of the WKF was formed as the very first structure to the Federation. It consisted of Mr Talal Takkoush (President in UK), Alan Smith (1st Vice President in UK), Ross Hug (2nd Vice President in Switzerland), Freddy Esker (General Secretary in Australia – Resigned), Mary Taylor (Executive Secretary), Mike Walker (Treasurer in USA), Pierre Dupont (Legal Counselor). It has “Now” taken on a whole new turn for the better with “New” appointed Directors Mr Robert Wilesmith (Australia Oceania) and Ms. Lina Andriana Tito (Indonesia).
But let’s look at the history of Mr Fritz Exenberger, his criminal money scamming past when he was the ISKA European Director. He worked with the operations of the ISKA for many years, but behind the scenes he was planning to scam monies from people around the world as only Mr Exenberger knows best. ISKA is one of many organizations that he swindled, that populated the world of Martial Arts, and Kickboxing in particular. Its history goes back many years and it is run by quality people (Mr Mike Sawyer is a lawyer) who are competent (32 years of experience). In the past they were much more active than today in the professional side of kickboxing, in particular during the time when in Europe the organization was represented by Switzerland’s Mr Olivier Muller, who knew what he was doing. Unfortunately, after ISKA had seemed to disappear from the scene in Europe, Austria’s Fritz Exenberger, the subject of much gossip, tried to bring it back to life, but with very little success from what we can see. Shortly after, Mr Exenberger was formally “Kicked Out” of the ISKA.
Read this quick “Statement” from ISKA World Director Mr Paul Henessey in the UK:
ISKA Europe does not support Mr Fritz Exenberger, or his “Make-Believe Federation” he tried to steal from WKF President Mr Talal Takkoush in the UK. In order to protect our sport’s fine athletes we need to respond to the ridiculous claims made by former ISKA member Mr Fritz Exenberger, who has released media statements indicating that ISKA Europe supports him and his Events in Austria. Mr Exenberger, who was dismissed from the ISKA in November 2010 for dishonesty, quite simply just makes this stuff up. He is a fake. Below is a letter from ISKA Director Mr Paul Henessey stating:
ISKA Europe does not support any of Mr Exenberger’s “unauthorized” WKF World Championships foremost because Mr Exenberger has no legal right to use the name and logo of the WKF which was legally registered back in 2007 by its founder and President Mr Talal Takkoush, who subsequently defended his legal right to the WKF name and logo and won his case against Mr Exenberger on 8th February 2012. Mr Exenberger was ordered to pay the legal costs. See the story and Court ruling here http://wkfkickboxing.com/News.htm. Mr Fritz Exenberger is well known for his “FAKE” Facebook pages and his “FAKE” WKF websites at: www.wkfworld.com. They are so obviously fake, we are really not sure who he’s trying to fool. It’s seems that Mr Fritz Exenberger has become a Walter Mitty character believing in his own fantasy world. From: Mr Paul Hennessy (President ISKA Europe).
Here is another Story where Mr Fritz Exenberger corruption “Ripped Off” Hungary’s Andras Nagy, when he fought Uganda’s Moses Golola “Intercontinental Title fight” back in December 2011. Andras Nagy won, but was “Stripped” of the decision in the ring, with Mr Exenberger jumping up in the ring declaring Golola the winner, going against all three judges. Read the Media Link from M.C. of the show Mr Roger Mugisha:
Right now, Exenberger is now “Paying” the Uganda Officials of the Uganda Federation of Kickboxing and the Uganda Sports Council, which right now is FULL of corruption, money scams and promising Uganda fighters hope of winning Titles, when the Titles there are ALL SCAMS, not recognized anywhere in the World – NOWHERE!! He is using Scammers Istvan Rozman (Hungary), Mohamed Dessouki (Egypt), Moses Golola (Uganda), Alphonce Wanzallah and Paul Kabaale (Kenya) to spread the deceit and pocketing monies for their own pockets.
THE “TRUTH” & HISTORY OF THE WKF (WORLD KICKBOXING FEDERATION LIMITED) AUSTRALIA & GLOBALLY:
In April 2013, Mr Robert Wilesmith (Australia) was appointed WKF Australia President, WKF Oceania Continental Director and WKF Secretary General by Mr Fritz Exenberger (Austria), and appointed as a IRC Board Member of the International Rules Committee with the WKF Internationally and a “A1 Supervisor”. At that time, allot of people in the WKF did “Not” know that Mr Exenberger was “Not” the legitimate owner of the WKF, including Robert Wilesmith. He kept this a secret, so he could extract as much money as he could from the African, Middle East and Europe Nations, as he “Bluffed” them into thinking that he was the WKF Boss, but really he was “Always” a scamming criminal of Austria. At the time of Mr Wilesmith’s appointment, Mr Exenberger “Never” spoke about Mr Talal Takkoush in England being the “Real” WKF World President at the time. Exenberger kept this topic a guarded “Secret” and claimed that “He” was the WKF C.E.O. World Director. Mr Wilesmith “Believed” initially believed all the lies Mr Exenberger told him, as he was very convincing. In November 2014 in Prague, Czech Republic at the WKF World Amateur Championships, Mr Wilesmith was nominated and sworn in as “WKF World Secretary General”. But shortly after that, with allot of “FAKE” broken promises made by Exenberger, Mr Wilesmith had his suspicions with allot of “Fake” and “Mistrusting” people that associated with Mr Exenberger over the years, which became part of Exenberger’s family of “Fake People”, including Istvan Rozman (Hungary), Mohamed Dessouki (Egypt), and many more!
SO WHO “IS” THE TRUE OWNERS OF THE WKF GLOBALLY?? ANSWER: Mr TALAL TAKKOUSH, Mr. ROBERT WILESMITH, Ms. LINA ANDRIANA TITO, THAT’S WHO!

WKF PAPUA NEW GUINEA – “WHO” IS THE “REAL” WKF PNG PRESIDENT? THE ANSWER – MR RICKSON YAMO!
Back in 2013, Mr Stanley Nandex of the PNGKBA (Who works with the WKA), was put in charge of the WKF in Papua New Guinea by Exenberger. It seemed to be going well, until Mr Nandex promoted a WKF show in Port Moresby, PNG on 1st June 2013 (Inviting both Mr Fritz Exenberger and Mr Gerard Dittrich from Austria) as high priced “Guest Officials”. Indonesia, Finland and Australian fighters were invited to this promotion.
All was well, until Alfa Tubagus (Indonesia) suffered a broken arm in his WKF Title fight. It was an “Illegal Kick” that caused the broken arm, as Tubagus slipped in the ring, and his opponent Kaupa Omena (PNG) continued to kick Tubagus while he was down. Mr Gerard Dittrich (Austria) was the referee, and he said that he didn’t see the kick. The bell bent, and it was the end of the round. But Tubagus could not continue, so Omena was granted the Title. The most disturbing thing was that there was “No” Doctor organised by the Mr Nandex ringside to assist Tubagus with his broken arm. Furthermore, when the Show finished, both the Austrian Officials, the Australian and Indonesian Teams were left at the Venue with no transport organised by the Promoter Mr. Nandex. The worst thing was, that we had to get a “Stranger” to transport all of us back to the Hotel, in the back of a “Truck”. The Promoter Mr Nandex simply “Disappeared”. Back at the Hotel, the Hotel staff gave Indonesian fighter Alfa Tubagus some headache tablets, as there was no medical Doctors working late in the evening. The following morning, all the International Teams and Officials had to check out and go to the Airport to catch flights back to their countries. Still, no Mr Nandex. Again, we all had to get “Strangers” to transport us to the Airport. Tubagus travelled back to Jakarta, Indonesia with a broken arm, and due to the poor fight purse that was paid to Tubagus, he could not afford proper medical attention for his arm. Because of these negligent actions of Mr. Nandex and his partner Mr. Eddie Kavina, a “Life Ban” was imposed on both of them and their PNGKBA.
After his 1st WKF Professional World Title Promotion as a Kickboxing Promoter in late 2014, due to his success and professionalism and his good character in the PNG community, Mr Rickson Yamo of “Powerhouse Promotions PNG” was appointed the “New” position in September 2016 as WKF Papua New Guinea President by WKF Oceania Continental Director Mr Wilesmith. The WKF does “Not” recognise Mr Nandex or his PNGKBA company, and is “Not” a Board Member of the WKF “Anywhere” in the world.
WKF MMA WORLD PRESIDENT – MR AMIR MOSADEGH. DOES HE QUALIFY FOR THIS POSITION????
It is a “KNOWN FACT” that Professional Kickboxing, Boxing, MMA is “Banned” in Iran & neighbouring Middle Eastern Countries. All fighters that compete in Iran has to wear Head Gear and Shin Pads, which is ridiculous, so they “Only” fight Amateur rules. So “What” is the motive of Mr Fritz Exenberger selecting Mr Amir Mosadegh of Iran to be his “FAKE” WKF World MMA President, other than a “Money Grabbing Exercise” for Mr Exenberger to collect? “Why” put a man in charge of MMA in a country that only allows Amateur Events, and is “Not” a country for strong MMA fighters or allows women to fight in the Ring or Octagon Cage? Fighters are “Not” allowed to be paid any money in Iran. Also, Mr Mosadegh is “Renowned” to do deals with trying to “People Smuggle” his fellow countrymen overseas out of Iran into Western Countries. This is “Not” good. This is their country Law. Also, in the country of Iran, nobody is allowed to have a credit card, and treats women like 2nd class citizens. This is “Not” good for the sport, not good for the athletes, not good for “Anyone”. So “Why” appoint this man? When Iran changes their Laws in Sports, then maybe it could be a considered. But for now, I agree that this prestigious position should be held by a Brazilian, or someone from a Western civilized country, or Europe. Finally, Mr Mosadegh is “NOT” part of the WKF World Board. If Mr Exenberger wants him part of his WKF Vienna Austria Board, that’s his choice. But Mr Mosadegh doesn’t hold “Any” position with the WKF registered company or Sanctioning Body outside of Vienna Austria.
WKF IN NORTH AFRICA – ALGERIA, EGYPT, TUNISIA, MOROCCO, LYBIA, SAUDI ARABIA, IRAN, IRAQ, SYRIA – DON’T ALLOW “PROFESSIONAL” KICKBOXOXING AND MMA EVENTS, ONLY “AMATEUR” EVENTS:
It is a “Fact” that Professional Kickboxing and MMA are “Not” allowed to be competed in ALL North Africa, as well as most of the Middle East (Except UAE and Turkey). Recently, Mr Exenberger illegally appointed a WKF Board Director from Syria. His name is Mr Samer Halimeh. First of all, “How” can “Anyone” be selected from a country where the whole country is trying to escape a War Conflict and is overrun by ISIS? The country is riddled with Islamic Extremists, with daily murders, beheadings, old men marrying child brides, women and child abuse. Until the WAR is over and Syria becomes a country of Peace, nobody from this country should “Ever” be considered in “Any” position on “Any” Board. Mr Exenberger may ask Mr Halimeh to be part of his fake WKF Vienna Austria, but he is “Not” part of any WKF World Board.
MR FRITZ EXENBERGER TRIES TO TAKE CURRENT WKF WORLD TITLES & REFEREE’S LICENSES OFF FIGHTERS & PEOPLE AROUND THE WORLD “ILLEGALLY”. HIS WEBSITE www.wkfworld.com DOES “NOT” REPRESENT THE “REAL” WKF:
In recent times, Mr Fritz Exenberger has “Illegally” taken down and deleted WKF Professional Kickboxing and MMA World Champions and World Class Referees and Officials from his website in Vienna Austria. This is “NOT” good business. He has illegally taken WKF Pro World Titles from fighters, as well as paid WKF Licenses (That he kept the money) from people who completed their WKF Courses, from Promoters that paid Exenberger thousands of dollars for the Titles. Where does all the money go? Into Exenberger’s pockets, for his drunken wonanizing parties he has when he “Cons” silly uneducated people to pay for his plane tickets and Hotels to bring him there to their Countries. Its a disgrace to see. He comes from a Taekwondo “Tappy Tap” background (NOT KICKBOXING OR MMA). He has “NEVER” fought in the ring, never in the Cage, and he rents a little mouldy Basement Gym that smells of water rot in the middle of Vienna. These are the following people he “Tried” taking Titles and Licenses off:
WKF PRO WORLD CHAMPION FIGHTERS DELETED:
MR JARKKO JUSSILA – FINLAND (Current 62.3kg & 64.5kg World Full Contact Champion)

“Fake” WKF Vienna Austria money scammer Mr Fritz Exenberger “Does Not” hold any WKF World Company shares, is not a financial Board Member of the WKF, has no duristinction anywhere in the world, meaning that he simply DOES NOT OWN THE WKF, NEVER DID, including Australia and any of the 196 Countries of the World. First of all, Mr Exenberger has “NO RIGHTS” with the WKF “ANYWHERE” in the World, as his “Only” fake WKF registered company is in Austria – “THAT’S IT”. He owns some “Tax Free” Swiss Bank Accounts, so he can hide all his Millions of dollars. Mr Exenberger cannot appoint anyone in Australia and Oceania from his country of Austria, as well as the rest of the World. He uses “Dumb” uneducated silly people that believes in his lies to do all the dirty work. Exenberger is a FUNNY GUY. Until Mr Exenberger realises this that the World has woken up to his lies, deceit and money scams, he will get “No Sleep” at night. Poor guy.
These are the “FACTS” of the WKF (World Kickboxing Federation). As far as “Any” questions regarding the “Real” WKF World Head Office regarding the WKF (World Kickboxing Federation), please contact Mr Robert Wilesmith (WKF World Advisory Board Director) at: firstname.lastname@example.org.

Exenberger is “Only” qualified at Taekwondo and “Tappy Tap” competitions. He has “NEVER” competed in the Ring or in the Cage. He calls his Basement Gym in Vienna the “Octagon Gym”, but really you can only fit about 8 people in the small smelly room, with no room to even skip!!
