Re: When is long enough to long?
I suppose you also have to consider the differences between the western idea of aikido and the japanese. West: Black belt is a high grade. Japan: Black belt is the start of training. Hence, in japan, I would very probably be a nidan now, compared to a first kyu as I am currently. Not saying I wish I was a nidan, Im just showing the cultural differences as they definately have something to say on this argument.
