Re: Grading question advice please

Some sensei never tell people when to test, and if you want to advance in rank, you have to decide for yourself (hopefully in consultation with some sempai, at least) that you are ready to test. Frankly I get a little annoyed at all these people who think that their Sensei (and therefore every Sensei) must be completely in touch with every one of their students. There's a lot of varriation among dojo cultures.
