Ranking systems in different countries
Hi, I'm from Indonesia. In my Aikido community, we have tests every 6 months. I'm still a 6th kyu, so if I pass each test the first time, I could reach the 1st dan rank within 3 years. I've read in a post here (forgot which one) that in USA you need at least 6-7 years of training to reach that rank.
1. Do you think that my country's system is too fast?
2. Because of the difference in training time required to reach the same rank, does anyone know if for example i move to America, do I have to take these tests again?
