With the rising popularity of MMA (Mixed Martial Arts) it is not uncommon to have Boxers, Kickboxer’s and other striking style martial artist training alongside each other in gyms across the globe. With this in mind IBKO was formed to provide an integrated environment where these clubs can compete under the same banner, and martial artists can grow into other disciplines.
