Kendo rank in terms of academic ranking

1 Comment

Most of my time has been spent in academia and as a result I began question what kendo ranks might equate to in terms of the academic ranking system. Below is a chart that is the result of that exploration. As I put this together I also thought about what I perceive as a difference between the AUSKF and AJKF in regards to where the sensei ranks begin. The AUSKF defines kodansha ranks as 5dan or above, whereas AJKF defines it as 6dan or above. It the framework I have designed, it means the difference between being a sensei with master’s or doctorate. I fully acknowledge that the relations I have outlined may not be agreed upon but it does get you thinking. rank-academia.002.jpg
