Re: Test Passing Standards - What is it?

As someone with bad knees who can't do suwariwaza anymore I'm pretty sure I don't agree with the comment that I don't deserve to advance in grade or that this lack of ability to do suwariwaza degrades the rank I hold.

The question for me is not can I do suwariwaza, but can I demonstrate the principals that suwariwaza teaches. Can I move from center, drop my weight, be grounded, etc. If I can demonstrate the principals that we usually use suwariwaza to teach, then I can still truly deserve my grade.
