HDKI Affiliation and Dan Registration Fees

The HDKI will use a system of banding in according of the core values to respect and facilitate the
HDKI communities throughout the world. Following the World Bank’s figures of GDP per person, four
bands will be used to allow national affiliates and individual members to pay proportionally similar
amounts. Please see below for charts detailing countries and bands (subject to periodic change).

Payment and registration of Dan Examinations

If a candidate is successful, the official examiner must register the grade within one month of the
exam. Registration for all Dan grades is €100. Once this money has been transferred to the
Headquarters, certificates will be issues.
If the candidate is unsuccessful, 50% of the fee will be returned to the candidate. It is then the
responsibility of the examiner to give a detailed review of the exam and provide a strategy for the
candidate to be successful on their next attempt.
Payment bands refers to the country in which the candidate is resident.
