KOKUSAI YUDANSHA DAN GRADING SYSTEM
The seishinryoku ryu is taught as a complete system with practitioners learning several individual disciplines as they progress. Students earn unified ranking under the system umbrella, however they must meet the individual rank requirements of each discipline before they are eligible for recognition. Below you will find a complete list of yudansha recognized by the I.O.S.K.D.K.J.A. as well as the disciplines they have studied to attain ranking. If a person is claiming rank in any SEISHINRYOKU RYU that is not listed here, they are fraudulent. To report a claim of illegitimate ranking, please contact our headquarters.

As with all Seishinryoku Ryu rank, the degree, or grade, is based on realistic fighting ability, knowledge of technique, understanding of fundamental principles, & an exemplification of the style's ethical values. Rank is not based on time, friendship, or how much money is invested. Possessing real skill and ability is the primary focus of Seishinryoku ryu !
