oh, I think I got confused; I thought this was about testing in Aikido , vs what testing "should" be in Aikido.

In re-reading it seems to me Paul is arguing about the results of said testing, or not?
Or, maybe I'm confused and I agree that we are talking about tests.

The thing is I see the word competition used a number of times in this thread but I don't see Paul using it. Maybe I missed the post?

If I understand the BJJ ranking process it's not competitive-based, rather, it's application-based and skill-based. They aren't the same thing although we tend to see them as the same thing.

Admittedly I'm playing around with the words, a little bit, but it's interesting how quickly we interpret them in a certain specific way.
