									Karate Dan Ranking
Many countries seem to issue different types of dan certificates.

    1. Dan issued by a dojo (from a dojo owner to its students)
    2. Dan issued by a local, or national organization
    3. Dan issued by an international organization

It is enjoyable having these certificates for passionate karate practitioners. Taking this
opportunity, I would like to bring forward the documents on ranking left to us by Master Asai.

Dan conditions
As the foundation, it is important that the following five Dojo-kun are met.
Those whose karatedo training history is over 2 years, as well as those who are certified for 1-
kyu can apply for Shodan trial.
