 Karate glossary no. 1 About the title of "Hanshi" "kyoushi" "Renshi"

These are a traditional title(称号)and honorary degrees to traditional martial artist (Karatedo,Kendo, Judo, and Kyudo, etc.) in Japan.
These titles are not given becase the Dan degree is merely high . When only he has a longtime achievement, study results and the schooling history, he are given.
The "Hanshi(範士)"is meaning "person who is the paradigm" and is presented to the person who has 9Dan and 10Dan .
The "kyoushi(教士)" is meaning "person who should become text "and is presented to the person who has 8Dan and 7Dan.The "Renshi(錬士)" is meaning "Expert"and is presented to the person who has 6Dan and 5Dan.
Though it looks like the pronunciations of "Shihan(師範)" and "Hanshi(範士)" , "Shihan" is not a title but the meaning of master. A person who has Dojo and teaches in there is called "Shihan" in Japan. However, if he doesnt have 4Dan or more, his qualification as the teacher is not considered. The person of 3Dan or more might be called "Shihan-Dai" (sub-Shihan) as teacher's assistant.
strongly expects the Tokyo
Olympics holding in 2020.

We arranged these four characters風林火山 "Fu'Rin'Ka'Zan" in the "Takeda-bishi" and assumed the symbol of WBKL- Karate. "Takeda-bishi" the symbol of WBKL
The symbol of WBKL originates in the family crest of Shingen Takeda 武田信玄of a great general in the 16th century. At that time ,Japan was Warring Period and famous generals who aimed at the whole country union were competing.
Shingen Takeda was a hero of Samurai and very popular. He died in the near future reunification of Japan.His symbol is called "Takeda-bishi" and the origin has two theories.One originated in the design of the plant water caltrop. And another originated in the Japanese character "田" that is "da "of Takeda.
