Access to senior grades in a multitude of martial arts Because we are a such large international organisation, we are lucky enough to number some of the most senior martial arts masters in our membership. These people are recognised experts in field and include Japanese, Okinawan, Chinese, and even western martial arts such as classical fencing!
Opportunities to train in Japan The SKBR has several Japanese masters as members, plus, a lot of the senior grade members from other countries have links to certain Japanese martial arts organisations. There are large courses held in Japan each year and you may want to take advantage of this.
