FEKO’s Chief Referee Azad Kumar, who is also a WUKF World Chief Referee, is one of the most respected Referees on the circuit.  This was evidenced recently when he was invited to take part in the WUKF Asia Intercontinental Karate Championship in Kolkata, India accompanying the WUKF President, General Secretary, Director of Events, Counsellor and the Public Relations Officer.  Not only this but he was chosen to lead the Referee’s seminar attended by Referees from several Countries.

 This was a particularly special event with one aim being to develop WUKF in Asia and provide a platform for future expansion.  

 Azad Kumar said “It was privilege and an honour for me to be part of this event and I came back with increased knowledge and many new friends” once again demonstrating not only his humility but his great professionalism in his approach to karate and refereeing in general

Recognition for Azad
