For rank testing the Tokyo Shibu Dojo member will have to demonstrate a satisfactory level of technical proficiency and mental/spiritual maturity. Accordingly, a member who passes a rank test will be awarded separate diplomas for each curriculum testifying to his/her rank. All diplomas are issued by the Honbu dojo, and signed by Tanemura soke.
