I was thinking the other day about how promotions occur in Aikido according to how many days you train versus whether or not you know the technique. I was wondering if this something specific to Aikido or if is this a common approach in Japan or other martial arts.

It got me thinking that when you stress the importance of training as much as possible, even everyday, then that places value on commitment to ongoing learning versus commitment to getting something right or wrong. I think that's important. Everyone is on their own path and the person who commits to ongoing learning is going to do things right and wrong. The person who commits to trying to do things right will likely fail to commit to ongoing learning.
