MERIT LIST

RANKED PRACTITIONERS

In our academy rank within individual FMA systems is acknowledged through the distribution of signed certificates, rather than displayed through coloured belts or sashes. However, symbols of merit, based on the logic of Miyamoto Musashi's Book of Five Rings, recognise depth and breadth of knowledge and skill within the academy itself. Unlike a recipient's grade within specific FMA systems, merits have meaning only inside our academy. Merits may be worn by the recipient on the left sleeve of their shirt.
