The High Dan Board recently voted to simplify the membership requirements. There will be two main levels of AKBBA/CSHK memberships: Student and Black Belt. Students will only be able to join under the auspices of a Black Belt. In addition we have an Affiliate Instructor Membership which is open to candidates who hold a third dan or higher and who own or are head instructor at a martial arts school. Click on over to the “Apply” tab at the top of this page for more information. We are making membership in this historic association even easier.
