Just for the sake of interest, as I realize Aikido has a diverse testing system, I thought I would post what my upcoming 2nd kyu test looks like.

Suwari Waza Tsuki [Chudan]:

Suwari Waza Shomenuchi:

Suwari Waza Tsuki [Jodan]:
Ikkyo

Suwari Waza Ryokata Tori:
Ikkyo

- 2 attackers: Ryote Tori
- 2 attackers: Shomenuchi
- 2 attackers Tsuki [Chudan]

... and some misc. items like 10 Kihon Jo, and 5 techniques with tanto, etc.

-----------
I find it interesting to see how various places have their testing schedules set up, so I thought I would share ours... well at least for the upcoming exam.

It seems like a lot, but most of the techniques I actually know - its just a matter of working them with various attacks.

The 'new' techniques are really Sumi Otoshi, Kubi Nage, and deeper into Koshinage

Also we have more emphasis on the ushiro techniques as you can see. [As for suwari waza... it works, not a favorite - knees get tired after awhile.]

Feel free to post your testing requirements up - it would be cool to find another schedule which is similar. [I assume by 1st Dan it all adds up to about the same thing, as everyone gets their ranks through Hombu and/or through a 'super Shihan' like Tamura Sensei, etc.]

Peace
