Yudanshakai & Executive Councils

JKR International is under the leadership of Soke Konishi Yasuhiro (Takehiro) and instructional guidance of Sensei Yamazaki Kiyoshi. However, the day-to-day operations of the organization as a whole falls under the Yudanshakai (black belt association) and the Executive Councils – a council from the USA plus additional members from the international community. The Yudanshakai with the Executive Councils ensure that the teachings and philosophies of Shindo Jinen Ryu and the standards and policies for the JKR are respected and implemented for all practitioners of this style of karate-do.
