We do not accept, recognize or issue any Black Belt certification that is NOT fully supported by an accredited organization, that is NOT ‘Chop Stamped’ by a higher ranking Master/GM in the same style of martial art, or from any Master/GM that left an organization WITHOUT summitting a letter of resignation prior to leaving (Honorable Exits are Mandatory).
An Organizational Appointment OVERRIDES any other rank inside that organization. If anyone leaves an organization for any reason, all certifications and appointments are void upon resignation or termination. Start you own organization? You CANNOT issue yourself rank honorably. Did you join a new organization? Now you have to re-certify your current rank, as well as ALL your black belt certs for you and your students.
Finally, all Dan level black belt certifications will be checked & verified, not just your current one (1st through current rank). That's right, all of them. All KCA black belts and affiliates must possess ALL Dan certifications, ESPECIALLY FOR HAPKIDO!!!
Rules are rules, and there will be no exceptions made here. Period.
