Re: Testing requirements kyu levels

What is generally done in the organisation I train with (White Rose Aikikai) is that the person joining is allowed to keep their previous grade, and when their grading next comes up they are either promoted to the next grade, or their currewnt grade is recognised by Sensei, almost like it being ratified.
