Karate Membership

All paying accounts are considered current Members with the National Karate Kobudo Federation. You must have a valid and active membership in order to test or substantiate authority using the NKKF name. Past members are not exempt from this rule as these membership dues support our various programs, administrative costs, operations, and events.

All members receive 25% off of any public LIVE seminar or web seminar for Karate, Kobudo or Iaido.

Inactive members may not use the NKKF authority or brand while competing, teaching, or creating content. This is strictly enforced and is considered dishonorable in the martial arts community.

Karate Belt Testing

Testing for a belt is easy with an email submission.

You may choose to upload a video of your testing requirements to google drive and email the link to [email protected]

You will be emailed an invoice for the testing amount prior to review of the material and then critique will be given as well as a pass or fail grade.

Please allow 3 to 4 weeks for diploma processing and shipping direct from Japan.

There is also an option to use PayPal on the testing page, once payment is submitted it will direct you to the upload section.
