International Kyokushin Budokai & Tactical Krav Maga Federation (IBK)


About Us

Welcome to the offical website of the IKB.

The International Kyokushin Budokai & Tactical Krav Maga Federation was born to support a large number of people who came demanding a place to feel identified and to guide them in the way of true Kyokushin Karate, to transmit True Budo Spirit without Profit. The IKBF which is a worldwide based federation was established as an independent Kyokushin federation un-affiliated to Japan. The IKBF under Hanshi Izhac Grinberg follows the principles and regulations of the International Budokai Kan (IBK) under Kaicho Jon Bluming and Judan Kenji Kurosaki.

We have grown with the help of our members around the globe, we decided the world did not need another Kyokushin organisation so we esablished a new approach for all Kyokushin Budokai and Basis Budokai Judo members. This Federation gives you the ability to become an independent instructor, dojo or organisation.

The International Kyokushin Budokai & Tactical Krav Maga Federation unites all our membeship groups together under one roof and helps unite us as a strong Federation.

The IBK has been established for over many years; we work on a no politics policy and allow the freedom for all our members to grow the way they wish too. We use the Kyokushin Budokai Kan syllabus, we allow our members to use there own kata's and kihons providing they are teaching 90% Kyokushin syllabus, we ask that each Instructor teaches the Kyokushin Budokai dojo kun and follows the elements of Kyokushin Budokai as of  Sosai Mas Oyama,  Kaicho Jon Bluming and Judan Kenji Kurosaki .

The IBK is like no other Kyokushin organisation, we are there for memberships for all types of Kyokushinkai,  spliter groups, other karate styles, individual instructors and dojos. We even allow you to remain a member of another Kyokushinkai, organisation, or other karate/martial art organisations. We bring together these groups under one roof to give them a home even if they are a Kyokushinkai spin off Organisations, or other karate/martial art organisations as long as you also do Kyokushin. We are a Federation to bond all types together regardles of where they gained there Kyokushinkai/Karate/Martial Art grades.

Our Honbu office is open and we will contact you for Federation infomation or notifications. We have a strict non interference dojo policy. We don't charge a yearly fee and we are purely to support the groups in membership and to help get them back into a Kyokushinkai and Basis Judo Organisation.

All Head Dojo Instructors are automaticly issued the rank of Branch Chief free of charge to allow them to grade there own Students. A Head Branch Chief (minimum Sandan Grade) is the Instructor Hanshi Izhac Grinberg will contact to inform them of any new members in that country.
