2014 IKKF / ISMR JOINT ANNUAL TRAINING


The INTERNATIONAL KARATE KOBUDO FEDERATION is pleased to announce its 30TH ANNUAL IKKF ANNUAL TRAINING, JULY 11 - 13, 2014. This year the training will again be held in conjunction with Hanshi Jody Pauls' INTERNATIONAL SEIDOKAN MOTOBU-RYU RENGOKAI (ISMR) Organization as a Joint Annual Training event.

The 2014 IKKF / ISMR JOINT ANNUAL TRAINING is tentatively scheduled to be held at the IKKF Honbu in READING, PA. Again as in the past participants can sleep over at the Honbu. Space is limited so if you are planning on staying at the Dojo, register for the Annual Training EARLY.

The training is limited to 3rd Kyus (Brown Belts) and above. So get your registrations in early to reserve you place. Last years event was one of the best yet, but this years event looks to be even better.
