Black Belt Registration
I don't know where this black belt registry is but I do see many martial art places in my area that promote the learning of martial art for health reasons and to strengthen your body.
I also noticed that people from this forum will ask about where to learn certain types of martial art from time to time.
Today I was on the Canadian Intellectual Property Office website and I conducted searches against registered trademarks to see if any "Dojo"s made registrations. I see a lot of abandoned trademarks or trademarks that were never registered.
For example, in 2004, I obtained a certificate for yellow stripe. I have included a redacted copy of my certificate for reference. The president was of course a black belt but he did not have the funding or students to run a proper dojo. He was GREAT teacher. I lost his contact information as I was just a kid. I believe he rented a gym in the community center every Saturday for a year where me and two handful of students got to learn from him. Unfortunately, I did not continue my studies.
I am sitting here wondering, if you are really someone who has the skills and knowledge to pass on or teach some form of martial arts in Canada, why don't you go ahead and register your trademark on the Canadian intellectual property office so people can find you and get connected to the right people.
If you were as serious as my teacher, your students would have a certificate like mine on file. I don't even know why he was so serious about it at the time but now I sort of get it. Even if he registered now, he can still claim that he has been teaching since 2004. He had students before me.
