World Budo Alliance
Budo is not a means of felling the opponent by force or by lethal weapons. Neither is it intended to lead the world to destruction by arms and other illegitimate means. True Budo calls for bringing the inner energy of the universe in order, protecting the peace of the world , as well as preserving, everything in nature in its right form.

INDIVIDUAL BLACK BELT MEMBERSHIP.

This membership option is for instructors graded at 1st, 2nd, and 3rd Dan level. The benefits are:

-         WBA membership certificate.

-         WBA Dan grade certificate.

-         WBA membership card.

-         Monthly newsletter

-         1 free training program complete with text, exam, and certificate upon successful completion.

Individual Black Belt membership is $50 for the first year, and $25 each year thereafter.

 Most organizations offer an under black belt, or “associate” membership option for individuals under black belt grade. We encourage those graded under black belt rank consult with their present instructor about the entire school joing the WBA together for only $4 per student. However, if an under black belt ranked martial artist is currently without a present instructor, we are more than willing to make an exception, and properly service the individual accordingly. In such a case, the individual is encouraged to contact the WBA head office to inquire.

In addition to the above mentioned member benefits, it is also important to note the other benefits that are available to individuals once they become WBA members:

-         Instructor development programs.

-         Membership and services of our affiliated organizations.

-         International fraternity.

-         Rank promotion oppourtunities.

-         Low fee WBA merchandise such as student rank certificates, and special achievement certificates for your school.

-         Seminars, clinics, and camps.

-         Discounts on instructional videos from our extensive video training library, which includes video instruction from some of the world’s best known martial artists, that are also members of the World Budo Alliance.
