WHO ARE WE?
European Wushu Federation (EUWUF) is a reinstated NPO that was registered in Belgium from 2011-2015 and was IWUF recognized continental representative for Europe.
REASON FOR REINSTATING EUROPEAN WUSHU FEDERATION IN BELGIUM
As we were all witnessing constant and growing dissatisfaction of national wushu federations in Europe with our continental organization, namely European wushu kung fu federation registered in UK with its ltd. business “spin off” company registered in New Zealand for unknown purposes (which resulted in catastrophic transactions and huge financial damage of EWUF’s members), a dedicated group of European wushu leaders decided to put an end to illegal and illegitimate activities of EWUF and take responsibility for the further development of our sport in Europe.
As changes could not be initiated by any means and in no circumstances within EWUF itself, a group of European wushu countries has decided to take its destiny in its own hands, and reinstate European wushu federation (EUWUF).
Vision of the EUWUF is wushu as a modern, well organized, fast developing Olympic martial art sport in Europe as part of the global wushu sport movement.
EUWUF mission is to provide conditions for fast development of wushu equally in all parts of Europe, working closely with IWUF to achieve this goal. On our way, we will connect, include, and assist all our members to join us in our mission. Every member, even the smallest, matters to us, and will be treated with care and dignity.
After EWUF registered in Belgium was closed down in 2015, organization with a new name, registered in another country, a totally new legal entity namely European wushu kung fu federation, never asked for recognition, or transfer of recognition from IWUF, and neither IWUF EB nor the IWUF Congress ever voted on that matter, or issued a document stating such a recognition.
European wushu federation (EUWUF), that was registered in Belgium, and recognized by IWUF till 2015, is now being reinstated, and will claim recognition from IWUF.
EUWUF will organize high standardized, rationally sized, and for its members – cost saving continental events of optimal duration.
EUWUF will acknowledge all IWUF official competitor’s equipment and garment for EUWUF competitions, so there will be no need for duplication and extra financial pressure on the members.
EUWUF will in all means look for the compatibility with IWUF : in sport development, in education, in application of the Duan grading system and in cooperation on multiple levels.
EUWUF will encourage formation and development of regional federations and activities.
EUWUF will have democratic statutes, which will disable manipulations and power abuse of few people over majority of national wushu federations in Europe.
EUWUF invites all national wushu federation in Europe to join EUWUF, and contribute to recovery processes of the image of European wushu, that has been severely damaged in last 10 years by the activities of the representing organization.
YES WE CAN, AND WE WILL DO IT,
BECAUSE AS MARGARET MEAD, FAMOUS AMERICAN ANTHROPOLOGIST WROTE:
Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.
