Re: Question about omote and ura...
It sounds like you have the basic understanding of the movements correct, but to totally understand these concepts why don't you ask a sensei or one of your senior students. You have many amazing aikidoists at your dojo - take advantage of them!
To answer your question, Dario... In the USAF (Duval's dojo is home to several if of the senior senseis inthis organization), the first test you take is 5th kyu. So his questions are right on schedule for his first test!
