The main international organisation is the World Union Of Qwan-Ki-Do, founded in Milan (Italy) in 1981.
Heading all Qwan Ki Do-organisations the World Union is present on all continents except Australia.
Purpose of the federation is to spread the philosophy and the theoretical and technical basics of this martial art.
The World Union of Qwan Ki Do ensures respect and cure for these purest Chinese-Vietnamese traditions, for the practice of the traditional martial art and for the philosophical and theoretical knowledge known in Qwan Ki Do.
A research centre also giving technical and medical advice headed by doctor Paolo Liistro is attached to the organisation. Situated in Italy it forms part of the Ambrosian Centre for Sports Medicine.
A fundamental task of the "World Union" is to guarantee equality and unity of the Quan Ky-school by co-ordinating the work of the national organisations. The goal is to establish Qwan Ki Do as a philosophy, as a martial art as well as a cultural and individual education.
The World Union of Qwan Ki Do has set up three prime directives:
  1. Development of Qwan Ki Do:
    The technical and administrative structures of the W.U.Q.K.D., the competence of its executives and the personality and technical achievements of master Pham Xuan Tong have greatly contributed to the development of this martial art.
  2. Recognition of Qwan Ki Do:
    Qwan Ki Do is recognised by most of the official martial art organisations as well as by the "Liên Doàn Vo Thuât Viêt Nam of Hà Nôi (25/09/90)" (Union of Vietnamese martial arts in Hà Nôi) and the competent Vietnamese delegation at the UNESCO (text of 24/05/91).
    Qwan Ki Do is thereby part of the Vietnamese martial art family.
  3. Supporting of Vietnamese martial arts:
    It's the main goal of the World Union of Qwan Ki Do to support Vietnamese art and culture by supporting martial art. A big step was master Pham Xuan Tong's trip to Viêt Nam, where he was warmly welcomed by the great masters as well as by the union of traditional martial arts in Saigon.
To reach their goals the World Union organises national and international meetings, training, official contests and celebrations of its most important holidays between its members. This has allowed to support Qwan Ki Do in the world.
A) The traineeships:
The courses given by master Pham Xuan Tong, who teaches his philosophy and technical skills yearly allows the different Qwan Ki Do-organisations spread all over the world to get ahead in unity:
  • Technical courses for the technical directors of the national organisations.
  • Courses for the international referees.
  • Technical courses for the high level degrees of the international Qwan Ki Do-scene.

B) The contests:

National contests: organised by single countries according to the W.U.Q.K.D.-rules.

International contests organised in member countries of the W.U.Q.K.D.

  1. International trophies (for each nation or club)
  2. Continental championship (Europe, America-, Africa)
  3. World championship
C) The celebrations:
  • Master CHAU QUAN KY memorial.
  • Celebration of the school Quan Ky.
  • Celebration of the end of the season.

All the forms of meetings have led to the realisation of world championship (the first one took place in Milan, Italy, in 1994, the second one in Abidjan, Ivory Coast, in 1998).

The International Qwan Ki Do Federation counts right now about 20 countries.
