Shidoin   

指導員  

In order to be certified as a ‘Shidoin’ or ‘Instructor’ within the Gima-Ha United Kingdom is necessary to have undertaken the two-year certification programme known as the ‘Kenshusei’ (Instructor Intern Training Program). Whilst technically we wish our candidates to hold the grade of Nidan (2nd Degree), we will accept Shodan’s who show a long history of conscientious training.
