One of Turkey’s most important sports managers and also one of Turkey’s famous businessmen, Turkey muay thai federation vice-president İbrahim Murat Gündüz made attempts for the International Sports Karate Association (ISKA) Federation, headquartered in America, to open a branch in Turkey.
Stating that kickboxing is only affiliated with the Wako Federation in Turkey, İbrahim Murat Gündüz stated that there should be an International Sports Karate Association (ISKA) Federation in Turkey for this sport to be practiced professionally in Turkey.
Thinking that Wako Federation can only organize amateur matches and kickboxing will never become a professional in Turkey, Turkish muay thai federation vice president İbrahim Murat Gündüz said, “No matter how difficult it is, I am very determined to bring ISKA Federation to Turkey. I do my best for Turkish athletes. I will do everything,” he said.
