The Details


  • First submit the APPLICATION and RESUME forms below.
  • If you are not personally known to an Affiliate or Board Member you may be asked to provide further proof of skill and teaching ability by an in-person visit or video. This is not an exam. We merely wish to determine your experience level. A vote of the membership committee takes 2 to 4 weeks.


Black Belt members should contact the Executive Director for information on becoming an Affiliate.
  • The $200 annual fee includes ten memberships (Student or Black Belt).
  • Black Belt should fill out the appropriate application forms but we only need names and ranks for under-belts.
  • You can collect fees for each member, in essence, covering your annual fee or you can provide memberships as part of your school’s tuition.
  • Upon acceptance we send patches and membership cards directly to you. We require that anyone wearing an association patch actually be a registered/paid-up member (so don’t order extra patches and hand them out, please).

We look forward to helping you reach new heights in your martial arts journey!
