Hi, what are you looking for?


The IFK announce promotions in the UK

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.
