Maybe their goal is to be a competent aikidoka that train regularly, and in this they are totally successful. Maybe they aren't stopped or slowed in any sense.
I have talked with them several times and the issue is priorities. They are certainly becoming compitent aikidokas but they don't
train regularly, which is why they have lagged behind in grade. I think that their goals are related to finishing school and moving on, not improving their aikido.
