I don't think that's exactly what I said, although I guess that can also be inferred and is an important point. I was referring more to students who question or doubt their promotions.

I agree and would add that posture is just as important as footwork. However, I don't see suwari-waza as absolutely necessary for learning how to become skillful (except when training with my 4'10" students). Of course, that could be my body speaking, which always hates me after I do some.

Hello, George, and welcome to aikiweb.

Hi, thanks for the welcome.

I guess what i meant was that if somebody has been given a grade which they don't deserve, then someone who does deserve it is given that grade, then it tarnishes the deserved grade.
My thinking this is as a result of (particularly recent) experience to be honest.
