AFFILIATE TO KONJAKU SHIN INTERNATIONAL
Member groups must agree to maintain the high standards expected by Konjaku Shin International, in both the practice and ethics of Karate-do.
Instructors must be of minimum Shodan grade, over eighteen years of age, and their dan grades must have been awarded by a recognised and reputable association. Applicants must supply the relevant grade documents/certificates for each of it's instructors when submitting applications.
Affiliation will not be given automatically where applicants are unknown to the Konjaku Shin Chief Instructor. In such cases arrangements must be made for him to visit the club, or for instructors of the club to visit and train at the Konjaku Shin Headquarters, so he can assess their standard.
Instructors and students moving from other associations may retain their present grades, but subsequent up-grading will only be allowed once the Konjaku Shin Chief Instructor is satisfied that the member has reached the equivalent Konjaku Shin standard for their present grade.
Affiliation WILL NOT be issued in the name of a country, only in the name of the club/association.
Note: We DO NOT give Free Affiliations, nor do we issue affiliation where an applicant
already belongs to another organisation, unless they are transfering from that organisation.
Loyalty is an essential aspect of Karate-do, and affiliates must agree to follow the Konjaku Shin Way.
There are two levels of affiliation
INDIVIDUAL CLUB AFFILIATION for single clubs
GROUP AFFILIATION for groups with three or more clubs
