Video Training Program
The IKMAF Video Training Program is unique and unlike most video programs. Our tapes are not professionally produced. Professionally produced tapes tend to have very little instructional value. Our video programs are actually classes taught by Headmaster Cyrus and other senior IKMAF teachers and masters. Our videos will give you the feeling of actually being in a classroom situation and instructional value is high. The cost of these videos will be nominal and will cover the cost of reproduction and mailing.
