Other IKC patches

(from a Facebook discussion about different IKC patches)

"Many off shoots of the IKC are giving away similar patches but with their countries colors and year held. I took my kids (Ed Parkers Grandkids) to compete in Mexico IKC so they can wear an IKC patch.

Mr. Parker actually started the European IKC 6 moths after the Long Beach IKC so that those who really couldn't afford to come to Long Beach could still earn a flame patch by competing at other IKC. The European IKC was held at a different Country in Europe and hosted by one of the Kenpo Black Belts chosen by the IKKA board at the time. Europe still holds the European IKC today."
