Please remember that in most dojos the first kyu exam is really not about perfection - it is a rite of passage. Pass that sucker and you become a member of the dojo. Consider it a welcome.

A lot of people are very nervous of the unknown but once past it they grow into the grade. If you are really worried about standards then watch the second or third kyu grade - the first is really only about getting up in front of people.
