Rank requirements for instructors

by JoseOrtiz

Under the AUSKF and AJKF what is the rank requirement to be a certified instructor?

Answer: In kendo, from 6-dan, it is considered to be a high rank holder (k┼Źdansha). So strictly speaking and in my personal opinion, 6-dan and above are considered to be certified instructors.

However, in kendo, especially outside Japan, it is very hard to find a place with k┼Źdansha so those who are keen and eager to study and learn kendo are usually in charge of lessons.

Hope this helps.
