T-Shape Self-Defense is establishing presences on four continents. The style is licensed in three different levels of participation: Affiliate Instructors-Tutors, Affiliate Schools, and Training Clubs:
- Affiliate Instructors and Tutors operate as independently owned businesses authorized to train the T-Shape Self-Defense under license agreement.
- Affiliate Schools are professionally run academies, with full-time facilities dedicated for T-Shape Self-Defense instruction, and are authorized to award T-Shape Self-Defense rank.
- Training Clubs are groups of up to 40 members training together in the T-Shape Self-Defense under direction of a licensed Affiliate Instructor. Training Clubs are not professional schools, and often use shared facilities not exclusively dedicated for T-Shape Self-Defense instruction. Most clubs do not award T-Shape Self-Defense ranks however, some have done so through their sponsoring Instructors.
Long Distance eLearning allows students to purchase courses for personal use. Students test for promotion by travelling to a licensed Affiliate School. Advanced tests must be conducted in person.
