Hi. I'm lucky in that I train with the Yama Arashi in the UK. Our home Dojo was the scene for our regular Kyu gradings this weekend. There were 46 Kyu grades taken, with around 30 Dan grades on the panel. We regularly hold seminars with visiting Instructors ( Donovan Waite and Terry Ezra were the last two) where we have to limit the attendance to 60. These seminars could be easily double subscribed, just with our own members. However, I believe that we are the exception in the UK.
