Guntai Shù 軍隊 術 means military skills. Many military members have put a lot of time and practice in training for combat. These combat skills relate to the martial arts training that many traditional students have practiced in training halls for years. The training military members receive are often times put to the test. Many skills are learned in the service and often go unnoticed and unappreciated.

Guntai Shù developed by Soke/Master Jackson Shatraw and authorized by the Founder of AMAWW, Soke/Master Jonathan A. French. We not only honor the skills you learned through the many hours of meticulous training regimes, and sacrifice you endured, we want to award you for them. Your training in the US Military can earn you an honorary black belt or Master black belt Certificate in Guntai Shu.

This is not a program that issues black belts to every military personnel, like every holder of a black belt, it has to be earned. The black belt is more than just a symbol of being tough it’s a symbol of accomplishment in these key areas: Combative (Self-Defense, tactical combat techniques designed for many situations), Fitness and Health, Leadership, and Character building. Each service trains and instills each of these into their members. The longer one stays in the better they become, much like a student of traditional martial arts.

To see if you qualify for an AMAWW certified Guntai-Shu black belt certificate, read the Guntai-Shu Manual by clicking below. Every Veteran that joins will get their photo posted on the AMAWW Black Belt Council page for as long as this Association exists and a lifetime membership to the AMAWW. To join, fill out the "Do I Qualify?" button below to see if you qualify. We will contact you within a 48 hours and if you are approved for the Guntai-Shu black belt level, click on the "Approved Membership Application" button and complete the process. Feel free to contact us anytime for any questions you may have. It would be the greatest honor to have all of you as AMAWW members.
