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
 880 yen (including sales tax and COD handling fee) per certificate.

Postage
 To be paid applicant and calculated on area of residence.

Other

・If certificates are collected directly from the All Japan Kendo Federation’s Kudan Office, only the handling fee of 550yen will be charged (the COD fee is not required).
