World Kobudo Federation clubs/dojos

As a World Kobudo Federation member club, you are joining a prestigious group of high-quality, dedicated martial arts instructors who are committed to improving themselves and their students, and who understand that growth and improvement only happens through concentrated effort and sharing knowledge.

The World Kobudo Federation is here to help you do that – in FOUR ways.

First, in helping you gain more knowledge and skill in martial arts with training opportunities (seminars, camps and Conventions), online resources with the world’s best instructors and masters

Second, we provide WKF Certified rank promotions (kyu and dan), instructor certifications and martial arts titles (Renshi, Shihan, Master, Kyoshi, Hanshi).

Third, we will provide you the resources and information for your martial arts school or club to make it run smoother, more organized and with improved profitability.  This information could help you grow your school 10%, 20%, 50% or more during the next 12 months.

Fourth, your club membership with the WKF provide you with ways to increase your club or school’s revenue through:

  • WKF memberships for your students
  • Offering WKF merchandise to your students- shirts, jackets, gis, training equipment and more.
  • Offer WKF diplomas (kyu and dan ranks) for your students

These benefits (and more to come) are yours as part of your WKF club membership.  Just fill out the membership application form and register your club (annual fee only US$150)


The WKF provides many opportunities for its members to train in various martial arts for skill development through it’s affiliated seminars, camps and Bi-annual International Convention. The WKF is committed to having its members uphold the highest standards of martial arts training and character development. Check our event calendar regularly to see the events coming up in your area.

Students and instructors who are interested in having their rank recognized by the WKF or who are looking for martial arts rank advancement in karate (various styles), jujitsu, judo, kali, hapkido, tae kwon do, kung fu (various styels) and other styles, may have the opportunity to be evaluated and tested by a panel of high ranking instructors at certain WKF events. You must be a current WKF member to be eligible for rank certification and advancement. If you are a member of a WKF club, talk to your instructor/sensei about your requirements for rank advancement.
