Note: In addition, each grandmaster of the Council is a representative of the Council in his/her own Country and State and may sponsor/ recommend an individual for membership. Membership is not automatic and subject to historical verification of the individual's credibility as a legitimate grandmaster within the world martial arts community. An individual who does not meet this criteria may seek acceptance from the Council by demonstrating his art before a testing committee appointed by Grandmaster Sanchez once he is sponsored by a member of the WHFSC. In either case, entry in the Council is based solely upon sponsorship and on the above criteria. The Council neither awards rank or accepts monies for membership. In this way, the Council maintains its eliteness and protects the reputation of its membership.
