In order to protect the integrity of the Rengokai, all organizations and unaffiliated Black Belts must be vetted, personally, before they can be admitted to membership. All students and instructors of a member organization automatically become members of the Ryukyu Kenpo Karate Kobudo Rengokai. Basic membership is FREE. Member organizations can attend and/or organize seminars of the Ryukyu Kenpo Karate Kobudo Rengokai when they want and where they want. This is a SERVICE organization FOR its MEMBERS.
The Ryukyu Kenpo Karate Kobudo Rengokai accepts, but does not certify nor issue certificates for, the rank currently held by members joining the Rengokai that was issued by other organizations. In addition, we leave all Kyu (colored belt) level certification in the hands of the individual Dojo and Organizations. The RKKKR does accept applications for Teacher and Dan level certification from Individual Members, authorized by their organization, who wish to verify their current, or progress to another, level.
If you feel your organization can pass muster, and, could benefit from an Association that cares more about its members' well-being than their money, then, contact us about joining an elite group of dedicated professionals who care about quality of the arts they learn and teach.
