Membership in International Shinbudo Association is FREE! We charge no annual fees, licensing fees or anything similar. All enthusiasts ready to co-operate in ISA are warmly welcomed. The International Shinbudo Association is a friendly group of people (individuals, clubs, organizations) willing to organize and/or participate on SPORT EVENTS under ISA rules. There are three ways of "qualifying" for membership in ISA: 


1. Participate on ISA Festival.


2. Participate on smaller international event organized under ISA rules by some active ISA member.

3. Organize your national Shinbudo event under ISA rules, which will cover Sport Kenjutsu and Sport Jujutsu disciplines. This competition should gather at least 30 contestants from at least 3 towns/cities. You will be listed as ISA member immediately after you provide photos and videos  from this event (via e-mail, on a CD/DVD or uploaded on your web site, YouTube etc.).

 

Membership in ISA is taken from those national representatives who fail to "refresh" their status over a period longer than 2 years, by any of fore-mentioned three ways of active participation. 

 

IMPORTANT NOTE: ISA does not support self-proclaimed "instructors", "masters" and those who have invented their own "styles", or have received their grades/titles from similar individuals or groups. No one under 30 years of age cannot claim 5th Dan or any additional/equivalent rank or title. No one under 50 years of age cannot be 8. DAN. No one under 70 years of age cannot be 10th Dan. No one  - even hundred years old - cannot claim ANY grade or title without proper verifiable training history and certificates. No one cannot claim the title of "soke" in any non-koryu martial art! All SENSEI, SHIHAN and HANSHI must have verified grading history in respectable national or international organizations. If you hold/claim rank, grade or title which does not fit these standards (set by the most traditional and legitimate Japanese based organizations such as Judo Kodokan Institute, Zen Nipon Kendo Renmei, Zen Nihon Budo Renmei, etc.) - please DO NOT CONTACT US! People who do not respect fair rules of martial arts promotions will also be unable to respect fair play and sport rules in general. ISA does not need such competitiors, coaches or referees.
