So, what is the criteria to move up to a 'genuine' BB? Time? Another grading?
Rupert,

In Thailand, the criteria I heard is the Aikikai grading fees.

Shodan-ho = probationary shodan

In some karate systems/organizations, they do have this probationary thingy for students who did not get full marks in shodan test.
