Hi Larry;

It might be relevant that our Shihan had graded me all the way up from grasshopper stage and spent quite a bit of time understanding all my little incompetencies.

I have seen visitors to go through the whole grading series before they are sent away with a Shodokan yudansha grade.

The number of people grading also has something to do with it. The whole grading is over four hours - my little part was 30 minutes.
