Registering Dan Ranks with Hombu Dojo
Please note that Hombu Dojo no longer accepts forms filled in by hand. Please fill out the form(s) online, print hardcopy(s), and mail the completed form(s) with appropriate payment to the Birankai registrar. For shodan registrations, please fill out all three forms. For other ranks, please fill out the "Hombu application for dan grades" form only. Make sure form(s) are complete and signed by the candidate and examiner as necessary. Please read and follow the instructions on the forms carefully. To confirm payment amounts, please consult your chief instructor or contact the Birankai Registrar.
