Referral Program June & July
During the months of June & July ICKF will be holding our referral program. If an ICKF member refers a new student who joins ICKF during the months of June and July the new student will receive a free gi (uniform) and the ICKF student will receive a free uniform or a free pair of sparring gloves.
The tentative date for the August grading is Saturday, August 10th. More details to follow. Best of luck with your training. Keep those goals in sight!
