IKF respect and follows the IOC’ s and WADA rules and principles for promoting and developing a clean sport free of drugs.
The athletes are at the heart of the Olympic Movement and of the sport of Kempo as well. The IKF’s priority is the protection of the clean athletes and to support them on and off the field of play. This means that any investment in the fight against doping and against match-fixing, manipulation of competition and related corruption, whether it be for education, testing, research, logistics or staffing, cannot be considered as a cost but as an investment in the clean athletes.
On the field athletes are the central actors in the sport competition on which the IKF Kempo is built. They are the role models who inspire millions of children around the world to participate in sport and reflect the IKF Kempo ideals.
