The 3rd dan I have referred to received his rank in Japan under someone other than my shihan.

Being japanese, my shihan does not speak English very well; so I do a lot of guessing as to his thinking on Aikido training. I am pretty sure he would think less of a sandan who was subdued by a yonkyu in the way I described.
