Re: What is the big deal w/ testing???

Testing up to Shodan means that you have learned how to do X number of techniques up to Y level of proficiency. After Shodan, you begin to study the Aikido behind those techniques.

This is why it is said that Shodan is the "first step".

So go learn the techniques, test through the kyu ranks, then start learning Aikido

Nobody ever said this would be quick or easy

Well, will there be a efficient learning system that exist to help you end the kyu and basic techinique and start aikido sooner?

Life is indeed a waving sea for non-office worker.
Gonna learn fast enough before time quota runs out for this or force to stop to carry on other issues.
