You can have your name added to this list when you register
with the Federation and receive your certificate. If an
Instructor's name is not on this list, he or she is not a

is a change in your address or information, or if you see a
mistake with your information. If you would like to contact
any Instructor or info on your State's Instructors, please

I am a lifetime member but
my name is not on the Instructor List, Student List or the
Yoshin Ryu Member List.
At the beginning of very year the data bases are
cleared and the Instructor and Student lists are deleted. The
reason for this is keep all contact information accurate.
Without an annual membership, there is no way to keep contact
info correct and updated. We ask that you simply email the
Federation under the subject of AFJ UPDATE including
any changes to your mailing address and your email
address. If you have no changes, email "no changes"
along with your name and state. You may not change your style or rank
with this update. Please allow time for the updates, they are
all performed by hand.
