IKO Honbu has postponed The 2020 events
As you are aware, in order to protect the health and safety of our members due to the Coronavirus/COVID19 pandemic, IKO Honbu has postponed The 2020 International Karate Friendship, and all related events that were to take place this April 2020. This postponement includes ALL the following events: the IKO International Training Camp at Mt Mitsumine, the IKO Intensive Course, IKO Dan Examination and the Ichigeki Training Course.
The new dates have not been confirmed yet. We are monitoring this rapidly evolving situation, and will inform all members as decisions are made.
For IKO international members currently in Japan, IKO Honbu plans to hold a small workshop, and will notify those members directly. This is not a large gathering. We intend to keep attendance low.
At this time, IKO Honbu strongly urges any international member who is planning to come to Japan next month, to CANCEL their travel plans. The Japanese government is considering to restrict entry, or impose mandatory 14day quarantine to foreign nationals entering the country.
We wish you all the best of health. Keep training and keep your spirits high. We look forward to seeing you soon.
