FSKA is a non-political organization. Each dojo affiliates directly with Shihan Funakoshi – we do not have regional directors. The reason for this is to eliminate political structures. Should you decide to affiliate with FSKA, you would deal directly with Shihan Funakoshi. FSKA recognizes your current rank if issued by a recognized organization. However, once you become an FSKA affiliate, you will need to meet FSKA requirements for future ranking. [CONTACT US] to learn more.
