RSR AFFILIATE DOJO APPLICATION PROCESS
We are excited to welcome dojos wishing to study and join the Ryushin Shouchi Ryu organization. To become an officially affiliated RSR dojo, you will have to go through our a simple Four Step process. These steps are being implemented to help ensure a certain level of commitment as well as the successful establishment of RSR Study Groups.
Fill out an RSR AFFILIATE DOJO APPLICATION FORM and submit it to the HONBU, or download the PDF and submit it to an officially certified instructor.
You can choose to visit the HONBU IN TOKYO and study directly with sensei and his senior instructors or attend an official RSR seminar.
*All applicants are required to attend a full RSR Seminar or personally visit and train at the RSR Honbu in Tokyo, Japan.
This is meant to ensure a certain level of commitment from the new dojo as well as providing an opportunity to meet and
establish a relationship with current RSR members.
Select a CERTIFIED INSTRUCTOR to help you get started. Certified instructors are qualified RSR members who are official teachers recognized by the Honbu. They will help new dojos establish/teach* an RSR curriculum, Kyu rank testing and setting up local seminars and promotions.
*This is designed to assist with the establishment and success of new RSR study groups and help them eventually become autonomous (when a new dojo has a ranking member who is able to teach proper technique, they will no longer require regional support).
Establish an RSR Study Group – Start training! RSR members are required to pay annual dues as well as testing and certificate fees. RSR Membership forms can be filled out online or submitted by downloading the RSR MEMBERSHIP FORM PDF.
Only after an RSR study group has been established will that group be eligible to host Seminars with Yahage Sensei. This will also have to be coordinated with Honbu so as to better accommodate Yahagi Sensei’s travel schedule.
