2021 IKKF 37TH ANNUAL TRAINING
The INTERNATIONAL KARATE KOBUDO FEDERATION is pleased to announce its 37TH ANNUAL TRAINING, JULY 9-11, 2021. Our first Annual Training was held in 1984 at which Okinawa Kenpo Karate Kobudo Hanshi SEIKICHI ODO was present. Over the years we have continued with the concept of bringing together a group of top flight instructors for three days of in-depth training on the traditional martial arts.
The 2021 IKKF ANNUAL TRAINING will be held at IKKF HONBU (HKA Dojo) located in Reading, PA. It is our intent to have an ANNUAL BANQUET as well this year, but plans have not been finalized for the Banquet at this time. More information to come.
The training is open to BROWN AND BLACK BELTS, as sessions will be available for all levels. So get your registrations in early to reserve your place. Our ANNUAL TRAININGS have been great learning opportunities in the past and we anticipate this years event will be just as good.
