At my karate club people call me Sensei, and my friends just call me Richard.


New JKF membership card 新らしい全空連会員カード

While most Japanese karateka have seen a JKF membership, most non-Japanese haven't. On the left is my new five year gold card and on the right is my old two year silver card. On the back lists the membership number, member's address and any JKF rank qualifications, like dan level or official's level.

There are several benefits to being a JKF member, one being I can get into the Japan Nationals at the Nippon Budokan for free.
