Re: Aikido Ranks and Tests : worthwhile or not.

And yet I think we are all aware of the over-emphasis that some Aikidoka give to their Rank - last year my Sensei went to a National Aikido seminar and forgot to take Hakama and Black belt with him.One Yudansha present refused to practice with him as " I don't practice with Kyu grades."
That person has no place in Aikido - nor should he deserve to be wearing a black belt or hakama.

...then again, that's just me.
