18th World Kendo Championship

The 18WKC is the premium event where kendo competitors from all over the world will gather to test their skills. Under the sponsorship of the International Kendo Federation, the WKC has been held once every three years ever since the first one in Tokyo in 1970. Each year, more competitors from more countries participate, and it keeps getting bigger and better. When the first WKC was held, only 17 countries and regions participated. However, players from 48 countries and regions joined the 17 WKC held in Corea in 2018.

International Kendo Federation

The FIK (formerly called IKF) was established in 1970 and it is composed of national federations that exclusively represent their country/region in kendo. At the time of its establishment, 17 countries/regions were affiliated with the FIK. As of September 2018, 59 countries/regions are FIK affiliates.

The FIK is a non-political and friendly organization. Its purpose is to propagate and develop kendo, iaido and jodo internationally, and to foster mutual trust and friendship among its affiliates. The headquarters of the FIK is located in Tokyo, Japan.

Comité National de Kendo FFJDA

En France, le Kendo est apparu en 1956, pendant une dizaine d’années sa pratique resta confidentielle; à partir de 1967 les premières missions officielles japonaises apportèrent leur aide et des groupes se structurèrent. C’est en 1972 que l’unité se réalisa avec l’entrée du Kendo au sein de la F.F.J.D.A. Le COMITÉ NATIONAL DE KENDO devenait ainsi, en 1973 “Disciplines Associées” et intégrait avec lui le Naginata, le Iaïdo et le Jodo.
Depuis cette date le C.N.K. s’est attaché à la promotion du Kendo et de ses autres disciplines, tant sur le plan du sport de compétition que sur celui d’une activité de combat propre au développement physique et mental des personnes. Toutes les disciplines sont pratiquées par les femmes et les hommes; les jeunes aussi trouvent dans le Kendo et le Naginata le moyen de s’exprimer pleinement.

Fédération Française De Judo et Disciplines Associées

En France, le judo apparaît dans les années trente, mais il se développe surtout après la deuxième guerre mondiale sous l’impulsion de Maître KAWAISHI et de Paul BONET-MAURY, président-fondateur de la Fédération Française de Judo en décembre 1946.

A partir des années 60, le courant sportif devient dominant. Le judo est inscrit au programme des Jeux Olympiques de Tokyo en 1964. Brillants lors des compétitions européennes, les judokas français obtiennent leurs premiers succès en 1972 aux Jeux Olympiques de Munich, puis aux championnats du monde de Vienne en 1975 où Jean-Luc ROUGÉ devient le premier champion du monde français. Depuis, les résultats français n’ont fait que progresser tant chez les masculins que chez les féminines.
