Re: Test Grading, Curriculum, & Frustration
Teaching guidelines are exactly that - Guidelines. You are not alway required to do every waza in a grading. I have seen gradings which quite frankly were overlong. Any competent instructor only has to watch a few waza to discern what level of excellence an applicant has.
My own teacher stated he could tell a persons rank the moment the person came on the tatami.
I have not quite reached that level of discernment but I feel I can tell when a student is competent or not. Cheers, Joe.
