IKKA Europe is travelling to a different IKKA country each year for gatherings and training camps. We do this, to give those who are not able to travel, the opportunity to train with our top instructors and meet and work out with other Kenpoist from different European countries.



Beside the Seminars, IKKA Europe has this unique concept of Masterclasses. Teachings out of the original curriculum, with useful insights of today by the instructor. This way we will preserve the Art and uplift it with modern day thinking to create a high overall European standard.

IKKA Europe is delighted to release the following information on the 2024 IKKA Europe Championships.

Kenpo karate

Founded and codified by Ed Parker, American Kenpo Karate is primarily a self-defense combat system. It’s a good physical education that stimulates versatile motor development, perseverance and self-control. Through Kenpo training everyone can strengthen their self-confidence and self-esteem. Learn to work together and take each other into account. Learning to deal with strength and power in a responsible way and also learning to stand up for yourself which will make you feel better as a person. 

Surely this should be accessible to everyone? Check out our school registry for a Kenpo Karate school close to your location.
