In my current dojo the testing criterias are easily available for everyone and students themselves apply for testing.

There might be an apparent lack of structure where you train but many schools/styles are in fact highly structured and follows a more or less set curriculum.

Sure, you can award shodan after 6 months but since the students would be as incompetent as 6 month-shodans as 6 month-rokyu. So whats the point?
- Names on a sheet dont teach you the technique.

- Im going by the comments on this thread and elsewhere on the forum as far as the comment about lack of structure.

- you missed the point completely, but thats fine...not sure how to explain it otherwise. Aikido truly is an individual art.
