Dear Kurash friends,
Today almost every country in the world and every Kurash National Federation are affected by the consequences of the COVID-19 Global Pandemic.
Due to these unprecedented circumstances, the International Kurash Association is forced to announce postponement of all events and programs on international, continental and national levels with the aim to contribute to the fight against further spread of the virus. This decision is obligatory for implementation by all IKA member federations and will be in force until further notice from the IKA subject to improvement of global pandemic situation. You are kindly advised to strictly follow instructions of your local health authorities in order to ensure your and your family members’ health and wellbeing.
The International Kurash Association is adamant that this unprecedented and challenging time will pass very soon and we all would be able to return to normal flow of life. However, today it is crucial to put safety and health first and cease all public events, competitions and joint trainings.
Wishing you and your family members to stay healthy and safe.
Yours sincerely,
Haider A. Farman
IKA President
