Can anyone tell me what the word/term shosho (spelling?) means? I heard it in the context of the awarding of shodan ranks for new yudansha, and the tradition (at least in our dojo) of having each new yudansha take ukemi for all of the yudansha present in the dojo at the time (essentially jiyuwaza). Also, do other dojos practice this tradition?
