An additional annual administration fee of $50.00 USD is required to have a Shuyokai listing on the Shuyokan web site. By checking this box I indicate my desire for such a listing and I agree to the annual administration fee. I also understand, after sending a written notification, I may cancel at any time prior to the annual renewal deadline. Further, if I do not pay my annual administration fee within 10 days after the annual renewal date, my Shuyokai Listing will be removed.

In the area above, please enter any comments or questions, directly related to the application process. They will be e-mailed along with your application and a response will follow as soon as possible. (Other questions may be submitted by e-mail to the Dojocho from the Contact Us page).
