Re: 4th kyu test what is expected?

Slow is smooth, smooth is fast. Don't blast through your test as quick as you can...you'll screw something up and look sloppy. Good zanshin and crisp/clear movement should be what you strive for. I am sure you have seen 4th kyu testing before at your dojo. That should be an indicator of what is expected (those who passed, anyway). Other than that, only your teacher and/or testing board will know what to expect from you personally. Every dojo has their own way of going about things...by 4th kyu I am sure you know what that is. So no worries, good luck, and have a good time!

Ichi Go, Ichi Ei!
