founded in 2004 with just a few wrestling fans. We started
as a fans club and we met once a week to review wrestling
matches. At that time, there are not any wrestling
instructor or organization existed in Hong Kong. We could
only order books and DVDs over the internet to self-learn.
In 2005, we met The Slam, who was heading back to settle
down China from Korean promotion WWA. We then went back and
forth to Guangzhou to learn wrestling from him. In 2006, we
noticed that the development of Taiwan wrestling was good.
They also invited Japanese professional wrestler to train
them. Therefore, we went to Taiwan to learn what
professional wrestling really means.
To create bigger noise for wrestling, in 2008, we
established "HKWF Training Centre" in Fotan, Hong Kong.
Although it was funded by our wrestlers, it was the first
ever wrestling dojo in Hong Kong. In 2009, we ran the first
wrestling live event in the training centre. Only 80 fans
had attended the show, but this was a big step up for the
history of Hong Kong wrestling.
Between 2009 and 2010, we held at least 10 live events in
our dojo. Audience size was growing well. However, the
operating cost raised quickly, we had no choice to close the
In mid-2010, we had been invited by a Taiwanese wrestling
promotion to wrestle for their show. Meanwhile, 2 HKWF
wrestlers had gone to England to train.
2011, HKWF returned in Sai Wan Ho's "Hangout Arena". In our
first event in January 2011, over 200 spectators attended
the show. Four events was held in "Hangout Arena" during
2011. On the other hand, Hong Kong wrestlers had been
recognized better by worldwide wrestling companies. Bitman
and Ho Ho Lun had wrestled for 5 different wrestling
organizations in England during July to December. At the
same time, AWGC Champion Jason New had been accepted by
Zero-1, one of the top Japanese wrestling organizations
founded by legendary wrestler Shinya Hashimoto, as their
March 2012, Jason New finished his 3-month excursion in
ZERO1 Japan and returned to Hong Kong. He beat his teacher
Ho Ho Lun to defend his title. In May, HKWF became a
working partner of Pro Wrestling ZERO1 Japan, and we will promote
wrestling event in Hong Kong under "ZERO1 Hong Kong"
In June 2012, we brought back "King Of Wrestling 2012". Five
wrestlers from Hong Kong and 3 outsiders included The Slam
from China, Ryoma Heno from IWL Taiwan and Sky from NTW
Taiwan had participated. The winner of the tournament was
Chris Forguete, who announced that he would be out of action
for a long period because of his new career plan. At the
same day, Jason New defended his AWGC championship against
CZW's Jonathan Gresham. In September, Jason New and Ho Ho
Lun were invited to take part in Japan's Tenkaichi Jr.
Tournament, where 18 world class light-heavyweight wrestlers
chased for the gold. December, ZERO1's Daichi Hashimoto and
Yoshikazu Yokoyama debuted in Hong Kong. Hashimoto debuted
his heelish mist attack in ZERO1 Hong Kong's ring. Jason New
failed his V6 title defense. Kenny Boy became the 2nd
generation AWGC Jr. Heavyweight Champion.
In February 2013, Kenny Boy first defense success when he
pinned Jason New again. In June, he flew over to Taiwan to
fight NTW Champion Kazuya in a double championship match.
But he failed to win again and the Hong Kong's AWGC
Championship belt is now owned by foreign wrestler for the
Working with HKWF
|The operating cost of
HKWF are mainly supported by our wrestlers, who all have
full-time jobs. Therefore, the actual resources to promote
this sport are very limited. Because of the unique
positioning of wrestling (it is sport but also an
entertainment), it is hard for us to apply for government or
social enterprise's funding - as most funding are defined by
the nature of the business, either sport or entertainment.
Therefore, we really hope that if you are interested in
being involved in the development of Hong Kong wrestling, do
