Rank progression in IKKA Europe

Test nominations must only be made in respect of active Kenpo practitioners who are prepared to test before a testing panel. All schools should strive to teach the complete Kenpo syllabus including technique extensions and all second sets. For all black belt promotions there must be at least one person on the panel two ranks above the rank that the candidate is being tested for. A Board of Trustee  member must be present for all promotions to 5th degree and above. The time requirements are set out below and are in line with BOT recommendations made in 2003. IKKA certificates will  be issued from the IKKA Europe CEO following verification that the time requirements are met.

We will protect the credibility of Kenpo within our organisation and will not allow an uncontrolled race to very high ranks. In the case of a first generation black belt student (promotion where Ed Parker is shown as the instructor on the certificate) the time requirements should only operate between ranks obtained after 1990. The reason for this modification is to respect the time between ranks decided on by Mr Parker while he was the direct instructor.
