Master Level Instructors
Grandmaster Tanemura awards traditional martial arts titles to Genbukan and KJJR members who have mastered the skills necessary to pass the authentic tests. Some organizational 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.
The people listed here have truly achieved the title of Renshi or above. I, Grandmaster Shoto Tanemura, and we, the Genbukan and KJJR Shihan-Kai, do not know and do not recognize any individuals claiming the titles Renshi or Kyoshi in our line except as shown here.
