        • If your proposed IKF Sanctioned event is more than 50 miles from any other already scheduled IKF Sanctioned event, the following rules do not apply to you and your proposed IKF Sanctioned event.
        • If your proposed IKF Sanctioned event is within 50 Miles In The Same State Or Across Any Bordering State, IKF Scheduling protocols require that the second scheduling promoter schedule their event date a minimum of:
          • 5 Days BEFORE or 5 Days AFTER the already scheduled Promoter who's event is already scheduled on the IKF Events page. (The scheduled event days do not count as counted days)
        • If you are in need of a certain date that falls at or inside the required guidelines above you may request to the IKF Headquarters a written request for a "waiver of date guideline" by e-mail to main@ikfkickboxing.com
        • Such a request must include a detailed reason why you "NEED" the requested date and why you cannot extend your date to the required guidelines as noted above.
        • If the already scheduled IKF Promoter agrees to waive the time guidelines you will be allowed to schedule your event inside the required time guidelines listed above.
