In being an “open” system, Osada-ryu is consistently evolving to reflect the latest developments in the Japanese tying arts. 

To safeguard authenticity abroad, all licensed instructors receive regular and up-to-date specialist training, with licenses having to be renewed yearly. 

Dojo members as well as individual students are being offered kyu testing to evaluate level and progress, validated by the respective membership cards of each training facility.


To date several hundred students have successfully completed testing along the kyu grading system, having attained grades from 9th kyu to 1st kyu.
