The certificates given for adult kyu grades at our dojo`s are all given in Doshu`s name and signed with his seal. There is also a half seal on them, the other half of the seal on another paper held at Hombu for verification. Kyu grade certificates for the kids are issued by our Kaicho, in his name.
We are in Japan though.
I stand corrected (as so often before...
). No wonder Doshu is so busy that dan-certificates takes up to more than a year to arrive with his signature. Maybe it's time to appoint a 'vice-doshu' who can take care of kyu-certificates...
