Koryu Karate
Grandmaster Tanemura awards traditional martial arts titles to Genbukan and KJJR members who have mastered the skills necessary to pass the authentic tests. Some titles do not require a specific test and are simply a statement of position within the organization. For mastership titles though, one must first satisfy certain rank and certification requirements to become eligible to take the test; and finally, one must pass the test itself.
