Re: testing

Hard

Every test is different. It depends on the testee and the grading panel/officiator/sensei.

They say the hardest tests are 5th kyu cos its generally your first. 3rd kyu because it is a big leap in terms of required techniques and ability. And shodan because it is the first of the 'senior' ranks and more is expected of you.

Or so they apparently say at Aikikai Hombu...

They're all screaming about the rock n roll, but I would say that it's getting old. - REFUSED.
