We honor your skills, experiences in martial arts and beginner’s mind. Therefore we will accelerate your learning process of Seibukan Jujutsu. Once you and your partner(s) registered, we will need a copy of your certificate that proves your black-belt level in the arts that you are a black-belt. Upon reviewing your qualification, we will send you an authorization for you to lead a Seibukan Jujutsu Study Group in your area, as well as a written permission to translate written materials into your language if any other language than English is used. If you are qualified to be on the accelerated program, the minimum required time to become a black-belt is 6 months from the time of registration. Once you reach a black-belt in Seibukan Jujutsu, you can choose to become an authorized Seibukan Jujutsu instructor to teach the art and begin promoting your students below black-belt levels.
