Fake ISKA Europe Facebook page PDF Print E-mail

b_250_200_16777215_0___images_stories_news_februar2014_facebook-like-icon.pngFake ISKA Europe Facebook page

Former ISKA member who was dismissed for dishonesty has posted a fake ISKA Europe Facebook page. There is strong evidence that former ISKA European President Mr Fritz Exenberger who was dismissed from his position in November 2010

is behind the fake ISKA Europe Facebook page amongst other fake websites and Facebook accounts he operates in an effort to damage legitimate Kickboxing organizations.

The main reason for Mr Exenberger’s dismissal was the deceitful way he launched a competing organisation whilst holding a position of authority within the ISKA using the ISKA network and resources to do so. Although Mr Exenberger had the right to appeal against his dismissal, no appeal was made.

Compounding the fraudulence, the name and logo he chose for his new organization already belonged to somebody else. The WKF (World Kickboxing Federation) name and logo was legally registered several years before 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 who was ordered to pay the costs, see the ruling here 
Regrettably, it seems that Mr Exenberger has no respect for our sport or the rule of law and still uses the WKF name and logo illegally. So while it is sad to think that things like this occur in our sport, unfortunately it is not surprising that there are those who would resort to lies and the use of fake Facebook accounts and websites in an effort to hurt legitimate organizations and advance their own greed.

We are currently taking legal advice regarding the fake ISKA Europe Facebook and possible copy wright infringement and action to have the page taken down. The Official ISKA Europe page can been found here



Just for your knowledge, this will be the last time we bring ourselves down to your level to disprove the pathetic rumours and allegations made against us.

It is obvious to us that you have misunderstood the concept of copyright and TM, so I will explain to you what would normally be obvious to a child.

Our TM protected WKF was established in London in February 1987 by its founder President Talal Takkoush.  I am sure that you are fully aware of this since you tried to illegally use our name when we refused to sell it to you. So let me spell it out to you.  Your persistence on trying to turn the truth around will only keep degrading you.  It is obvious that your FAKE WKF isn't doing well and consequently you feel the need to steal other people’s glories. This has become a very well-known fact to everyone.

I would encourage those who are still in doubt to contact ISKA directly and ask them why specific people were expelled from their organisation. You simply cannot be a ‘European Chairman’ in a company of which you have been expelled! 

We would like to take this opportunity to advise you to divert all this effort and energy in making your own name elsewhere rather than stealing others.

We would finally thank all for those who have contacted us showing their support and knowledge of the truth.


And we are definitely the real global owner”.

Illegal use of WKF

We have recently received several enquiries about the latest procedures and outcomes of our legal action against the illegal use of our name: World Kickboxing Federation - WKF.
We would like to notify you all that, as expected, we have successfully Won the case against the illegal use of our WKF. For verification please see below:-

The authentic World Kickboxing Federation was founded by Prof Talal Takkoush in the UK in 1987, and has no links whatsoever with the illegal WKF founded more recently ( 
We have turned down many offers to work with the individuals who have set up the website and claimed to be the original WKF.
I hope this clarifies any misconceptions and would like to take this opportunity to warn you all that any certification awarded by this illegal group will not be recognised by the official WKF Headquarters in London, UK and will therefore be deemed invalid.

New WKF Decision


Important Announcement:

To those who have contacted us regarding a tournament taking place in Europe, we bring it to your attention that this is not an authentic
WKF tournament. We are in the process of taking legal action against those who are illegally working under our WKF name.
Details of any upcoming events will be found on the events page on this official WKF website.
May I take this opportunity to welcome all those who have recently joined us from around the world and look forward to working together.
