Here’s the message from IFK Founder Hanshi Steve Arneil:
Normally the promotions of our members to Yondan and above are carried out at our prestigious events. Due to the unprecedented time of a global pandemic, we cannot gather together, so I have taken the decision to announce the 2020 promotions via our website.
I wish to announce the promotions of the following karateka:
Shihan Maria Da Costa 6th Dan
Shihan Norman King 5th Dan
Shihan Clara Akpokomua 5th Dan
Sensei Emma Markwell 4th Dan
I apologize deeply due to the pandemic I am unable to meet with you and present your award in person. I thank you all for all your hard work and dedication over the years.
