The KIAB obligate itself to give a home to each honestly interested Martial Artist (no matter which style/system). Prerequisite is the honourable studying and training of its style / system. The KIAB is 100% free of each sport politics. No titles become issued, like director or president etc. because here already the sport politics are getting involved and lots of Officials begin to exploit many of such functions against the athletes. The KIAB is an international Martial Arts Training Community with the aim by using seminars, tournaments (tournaments only if required) to create friendships throughout the World. Leader of KIAB or Head of Family is Mr. Freddy Kleinschwaerzer. He is practising in the Arts for more than 28 years by now. He bears the title of Roku-Dan (9th Dan) in Seiwakan-Budo, Go-Dan (5th Dan) Kun-Tai-Ko, Kickboxing (WKA & WAKO) and the 3rd Dan Ju-Jutsu.

 

The association provides for all honest and loyal Martial Artists a chance to become internationally recognized. Proved master degrees (Dan grades) will be recognized by the KIAB and it is also possible to do examinations inside the KIAB. Momentarily the KIAB is still a small Association, but we grow every year because of our idea of freedom inside without any sport politics. The big coverage in the KIAB's back are some of the finest and highes Grandmasters from Japan. 

 

Each Instructor/Teacher has direct access to the Head of Family. They are responsible for their black belts, students etc. itself. The KIAB does not interfere into the belongings/concerns except some Dojo-Leader specifically desire for it.

 

The international Coordinator of KIAB / Head of Family appoints national and regional Representatives in their countries. It will be their task to enthusiast new Martial Artists for ideas of the KIAB, to organise national and international seminars or tournaments and to keep the friendly and family feeling between all the different styles and systems as well as in the particular Dojo's. To lead an organization of that type and to run this association, are attached certain financial obligations on that. These are so tightly calculated, so that it comes not to an exploitation of any of our athletes (like you find it in many other associations)
