What do you think of the idea of proposing such requirements... just as an idea, and have various sensei critique it.

I think if you take a 5-7 kyu rank setting and put stages of developement out there, ideas for what the student should be looking for, trying to achieve, points of interest, direction of students attention (hand position, hip movement, extension, etc.) you could end up with just the syllabus you've been looking for.

Whether or not it has formally been done before... I have no idea. But who says we can't start and work on such an idea in the meantime?? I think you could really be on to something here.

Any high ranking Sensei out there gonna chime in on this subject? idea? Please feel free!
