Anti doping

The World Amateur K-1 Federation through the Medical and Anti-doping Committee, works to help and educate the World Amateur K-1 Federation community, both National Associations and instructors, in the standardization of medical and anti-doping practices.

It’s aim is to protect the spirit of K-1 from being undermined by doping and to establish an environment which influences doping-free behavior among all participants. While a comprehensive testing program plays a fundamental part as a deterrent and preventative measure against doping.

The World Amateur K-1 Federation acknowledges that it has a duty to support its National Associations to provide athletes, coaches, umpires, referees and other members involved  with the information and technical advice they need to make informed and responsible choices in compliance with the World Amateur K-1 Federation and WADA anti-doping regulations.

Prohibited List

The Prohibited List identifies substances and methods prohibited in-competition, at all times (i.e. in- and out-of-competition) and in particular sports. Substances and methods are classified by categories (e.g. steroids, stimulants, masking agents). The list is updated annually following an extensive consultation process facilitated by WADA.

It is each athlete’s responsibility to ensure that no prohibited substance enters his/her body and that no prohibited method is used.
