About “Proof of Dan Grade Acquisition” Certificates
The All Japan Kendo Federation (AJKF) issues a “Shogo/Dan Grade Certificate” when practitioners pass shogo and dan level examinations. If the certificate is lost, for example, a new certificate can be issued upon request. However, because the reissue of a certificate can only be made with the name of the current president, a “Proof of Dan Grade Acquisition Certificate” will be issued as a substitute for those taken in a previous president’s tenure.
The AJKF will issue a replacement “Proof of Dan Grade Acquisition Certificate”. Since May 1 2009, these have been issued at a cost (details below).
|Issuing Fee||864yen (including sales tax and COD handling fee) per certificate.|
