A Weird Testing Thing

I attend a small dojo where there is not ability to have advanced class becasue we are too small.

Our dojo seems to have philosophy of test when you have the hours to test. But since we are so small we don't always have enough time to go over each technique that will be on the test. So, even tho body movement may be at the right level for passing the test, there is some concern that the technique is not there.

In perfect world, yes, we are ready to test when we test, but situation means we aren't always.

This is for levels before black belt test, FYI.

A friend who also attends dojo is getting frustrated about testing requirements. Friend does not want to take test unless sure of passing. Feels somewhat pressured to test but does not feel ready.
