Re: significance to testing/belt rank?

Out of interest and because I enjoyed reading it, this translation of Yasuo Kobayashi Shihan's blog is relevant to the whole testing discussion, both in terms of how he sees tests and also the failure rate ( particularly note the yondans).

The translation is by Ekoba ( another Kobayashi dojos student but no relation!) and very welcome for us non-Japanese speakers & readers.
