Please note that WJKA recognised Dan ranks can only be awarded by those Instructors who hold valid up to date examiner licences (as listed on this website).                                                                                                                                  
Dan ranks awarded by anyone other than a registered WJKA Examiner cannot be called WJKA ranks and will also not be recognised.                                                                                                                                                                                         
Examiners that have not renewed their licences and have allowed their licences to lapse are therefore not authorized to award WJKA Dan ranks and any ranks awarded by these examiners will not be recognised by the WJKA.        
If there is any doubt to the validity of any WJKA Dan rank, then please contact WJKA H.Q.for confirmation.
