As some of the guys on F12 know, I have been working on the creation of an international federation, to promote the grappling format of Combat Wrestling for the last 2 years. After a conversation with the original creator of the tournaments, Kiguchi Noriaki, from the famous Kigushi Dojo, I received his blessing for the newly formed International Federation of Combat Wrestling (FICW) and he accepted to take the position of an Honorary President. At this moment we have included several countries on 3 continents and together we secured dates for the 1st Combat Wrestling World Championship (22nd of August in Varna, Bulgaria) And a few of the local federations have announced the dates for their team trials, to represent the countries in the Worlds. The rest of the countries are about to announce their event schedules soon. Additional information you can find on the official website combatwrestling.org and to follow our activities on the channels and social medias, listed on the website.
