Re: Asking to Postpone Shodan Test?

Definitely inappropriate. Not only is it bad manners but you are also questioning you Sensei's judgement.
I am sure that there are a vast number of Aikidoka who have felt that they are not ready for a grading. That should not stop them testing. I include myself in that number even after nearly thirty years of training and teaching.
