$25 PER TEST SET-UP for all brown and black belt tests AND cross-certification evaluations.
This fee must be paid EACH TIME a brown or black belt test or a cross-certification evaluation has to be designed for you. Hopefully you will follow all of the directions correctly the first time so you only have to pay one set-up fee.
CERTIFICATE MAILING FEE:
When you are promoted to any rank, up to shodan, you will receive a PDF version of your promotional certificate. If you would like an actual “hard copy” certificate mailed to you you will have to pay for Priority Mail postage [$10.35 in the US].
If you live in a foreign country and want a “hard copy” certificate mailed to you for ANY rank you have earned, there is a fee to mail it Priority International, the only relatively safe way to send it. Priority Mail fees for other countries are posted to the right [under “Choose One”] and are subject to change. Excess s&h fees will be refunded via PayPal.
There is NO MAILING CHARGE if you want your certificate sent to you as a PDF file [normal procedure] and you can print it yourself!!
American Ju-Jitsu Association [AJA] Annual Membership
AJA membership is available ONLY to current BJJY members and is for the calendar year [January-December]. ALL BJJY members in the U.S., Sankyu & higher grade, MUST have an AJA membership prior to any promotion to sankyu or higher rank. AJA membership is strongly recommended for non-U.S. members as well so that you can secure AJA certificates of rank for sankyu and higher ranks ONLY, [at an additional nominal fee]. Purchase of just an AJA membership does NOT automatically include an AJA emblem/patch!
The current charge for your annual AJA fee on this website is $20 per calendar year [plus s&h]. Current and past AJA Newsletters [going back to 1992] should be available online for viewing and as a downloadable pdf file by clicking HERE
