Honor, Virtus et Potestas

Honors and Awards System

Beyond the award of rank to those who have displayed their proficiency at the level for which they have been training, our school has an Honors System in place to reward members for their contributions, efforts and accomplishments inside and outside of the school that positively influence the lives of other people. The criteria for these awards are such that a person may be presented with one of these awards for a single act or for an accumulation of actions over a period of time. Any member may be recommended for one of these awards at any time, but the member is required to meet all criteria before the award is approved and presented.

Commendation Cross: In short, this award is granted to members who distinguish themselves above and beyond what is normally expected of a member. The actions of the member must be of great benefit to his or her fellow members, to society in general, or both.










Knight’s Cross :

This award is to recognize those members through whose selfless actions many others have benefited. Likewise this award may be granted for acts of heroism at the risk of one’s own safety. Unlike the Commendation Cross, this award is also representative of a rank and comes with a green chevron. This may be presented to a member for a single action, or for a series of acts over a period of time. Any member may be recommended for this award, but must meet all criteria prior to presentation if approved.  This award is ranked higher in precedence than that of the Commendation Cross. This award may only be approved and presented by a Grand Master. (Note:This award is a martial arts award and while its rank within our school is that of knight, it is not a knighthood recognized at present by any head-of-State and/or monarch. It is a prestigious award within our school honoring bravery,significant contributions, and other worthy chivalric conduct of a high level).
