Re: Double Grading!

Hi, The dojos I've attended have had 'unranked', 5th kyu (first grading) and so on.
I went into one grading test as a 5th kyu, came out of it a third kyu. I think the judo shodan background may have influenced that. It's unusual for double gradings. (but, oddly enough, I was also double graded from 5th kyu to third kyu in Judo, many years earlier, with the admonition that I'd better prove I deserved the extra promotion)
