Dan Grading

JKF Wadokai Dan grading

Within FEW there are several capable and licensed people to judge JKF Wadokai Dan grading exams. The screening officers have licenses from JKF Wadokai and hence you have the opportunity to take official JKF Wadokai grading during annual FEW events. This means that your grading will be formally registred in Japan and that you will receive a JKF Wadokai Dan grade certificate.
