I haven't been on the grading end of the mat, but at my dojo it looks like everyone who tests is advanced in rank. This used to upset me and make me wonder why I worked so hard to prepare for tests.

Lately I'm more comfortable in my knowledge that training hard is never a waste of time, that my preparation makes each test into something I can honestly be proud of, and that this sense of honesty and high standards in my practice are the rewards for taking it all seriously.

So, on that note, who cares what methods are used?
