AJJF Council of Senior Instructors

In 2005 the Board of Professors asked a few of the AJJF senior instructors from the various regions around the country to organize a committee to improve communications between the School Heads and the BOP. We would be both an informal two-way channel for information and also operate as ombudspersons to deal with issues that come up in any organization. We also take on projects designed to assist the School Heads and the AJJF.  The hope is that this position would be an interactive one in which you could also contact the committee members to assist you or get advice, etc.  Professor Cross is the liaison between the CSI and the BOP.  The Chair of this committee also sits on the BOD as a voting member.

The current CSI members are listed below with their contact information. The larger table at the bottom lists the dojos and their principal contact(s). Of course you are free to contact any CSI member you wish.
