JAWA(japan armwrestling association)has officially applied for membership in the International Federation of Armwrestling (IFA). The member states to IFA are approaching 30 countries at the moment, and I believe that having a direct pipe to the World Championship as JAWA hopes for further development in the future. We are preparing to take part in the World Championships, which will be held in Poland from December 2 this year. Above, I will report to players and officials of each prefecture federation.

This article has been published under the approval of IFA by the following e-mail exchanged between IFA Secretariat and JAWA Secretariat.




Currently, JAWA is in the process of joining the IFA.

The director of JAWA wants to announce that we have applied for membership in the IFA. Is that possible? Also, can I use the IFA logo on the JAWA website?

We must choose a player to compete in the World Championships. To do this, you need to make it public on JAWA’s homepage.


We have agreed that you may announce your IFA membership on your web page and use IFA logo.

” We are overwhelmed by the positive response from the international armwrestling community. Thank you all for the welcoming attitude and the recognition of the need we intend to meet. IFA welcomes federations interested in membership to contact us at for further documentation, information and requirements. Contacting IFA through this mail is not in any way binding, but only a request for information on how to join. Due to longstanding behavior of threats and intimidation directed towards athletes, officials and federations we will also assure those interested that shows of interest will not be made public until an entity has formally decided to join. ”

” A new International Armwrestling organisation is finalizing registering process.

The structure is ready!
A provisional board under the leadership of Anders Axklo have worked with setting up a structure that can grow into the functional and transparent organization that the world armwrestling community needs.
The new international non-profit organization has been filed to Swiss Chamber of Commerce under Swiss law as the International Federation of Armwrestling (IFA) and will within short be available for national federations to join as full members. The choice of Switzerland follows international practice for global sports organisations, for example IOC, GAISF, CAS, FIFA and many more. In short IFA will be under the same legislation as these organisations, something that has been long overdue in armwrestling.

The structure is now in place, and leading up to the first Open World Championships 2019. The dates of the IFA WAC 2019 will be announced shortly.
The provisional board will work with all things needed in preparation for the first championships, and also preparing for the member’s first General Assembly, where open and free elections will be held to set the first executive board.

New international organisation is open to all national federations (full membership) as well as clubs and individual country’s representatives (limited membership), to all who want to help in the shaping of the future of armwrestling. ”
