Once you are an WMAF Certified Head Instructor, you will be granted authority
to test your students through the WMAF, up to one grade below your current rank. (Examples: A WMAF 1st Degree Black Belt Head Instructor may test his/her
students up to 1st Gup (the rank just below Black Belt). A WMAF 2nd Degree Black Belt Head Instructor may test his/her students up to 1st Degree Black Belt, etc.).
All 4th Degree Black Belt promotions or higher must be approved by the WMAF President prior to the test being given. All students must be registered WMAF members in good standing in order to test.
The Head Instructor will then submit an "Application For Promotion", for each person who tested, to WMAF World Headquarters for processing.
The WMAF will issue a new Certificate of Rank and a Rank and Identification Card for each person. These will be returned to the issuing Head Instructor who
will award them to his/her students. ALL Certificates of Rank, Rank and Identification Cards or any other
WMAF Certificate will be issued ONLY from WMAF Headquarters to insure authenticity.
A WMAF black belt in good standing may apply to enter the WMAF
