Kata Manual

The BOP has been focusing on the History and Shinyo no Maki sections of the kata manual. Members of the BOP are working on final comments to these documents.

Healing Arts Classes

A new policy on how healing arts classes may be counted as mat activities for exam purposes has been approved. The new language is:

Healing arts classes count as mat activities with the following caveats.

1. Attendance during a DZRSI Module 1 or 2 can count as one mat activity per year of time in grade (maximum of one of the three mat activities per year)
2. Massage Continuing Education and Healing Arts classes taught by Standards Committee Members (or instructor who is approved by the committee) also qualify.

Convention Committee

A subcommittee was formed to define how to best improve marketing and information about Convention to all registrants.

Records Retention

The BOP is working guidelines outlining which records to preserve and what the best method would be to save them.

Kappo Video

The Kappo video is complete. An announcement will be made at the School Heads Breakfast at Convention and an email announcement will be sent to the school heads advising how they may obtain the video. School Heads may release the video to their students at their discretion.
