Re: Poll: If you were asked by your instructor to test for rank, would you turn it down?
We always test by invitation. In three weeks I'm testing for second kyu.Provided I pass, I think that if Sensei invites me to test for first kyu next year I may turn it down. I can handle being a 2nd kyu for longer than ten months! If I don't pass, I test again when I am invited.
