Thanks!

    It's not a rank certificate, it's a membership certificate in a branch of the Budokan.

    Not sure what the name is.

    Can't make out the date, there's a crease, it may be 1945?

    Stamps are hard, I can't make them out usually.

    Ogawa Ryuzo signed far left. The three vertical columns are his positions, right to left:
    • 5th dan judo, Dai Nihon Butokukai
    • Member, Greater Japan Ancient Martial Arts Preservation Society
    • Shihan, Kashima Shin'yo Ryu Jujutsu Judo

    BTW, the only mention I can find of Kashima Shin'yo Ryu in Japanese is with Ogawa sensei himself.

    So, why don't you post the history of Ogawa sensei and the Budokan in Brazil? Fire up some interest in your research.
