    As a former I.K.K.A. member myself it saddens me to say this but, hope for the best and prepare for the worst. From my vantage point the I.K.K.A. might not ever be re-established. If you don't mind me asking... What web site did you see this information posted on?

    mr.lear if i,am not sure but, i think it was tiger&dragonkenpo.com. I too was also a member of the i.k.k.a. back in the mid ninty,s but i hope is one day that another kenpo instructor in american kenpo that,s a higher rank than me would move to birmingham so me and my classmate can still train on for higher rank. two years, i spoke to one of the parker daughter about having someone from the i.k.k.a. to move here and take over,since master(bill parks) died. while the mean while i was trying to rejion the i.k.k.a. that,s when i found out the i.k.k.a. had close down. thank you scorpio

    Perhaps the only way that the IKKA could return is as a memorial society open to anyone from any of the other "new" associations. It could provide services such as making the original IKKA material widely available as collector's items. If the IKKA tried to restrict dual membership, it would fail. Nearly everyone has formed a new loyalty to their given Master/leader/organization.

    I would like to see it come back.
