Re: Poll: How often do you get to choose your uke(s) for your rank testing at your aikido dojo?

At my club here in the UK, uke's are chosen by the grading panel on the day. When I was living in Japan, uke is chosen by the dojo cho, but chosen in advance so that you can work with them for a week or two leading up to the grading. Either way, you have no choice in uke's.

At our mother-dojo in Japan, like here, uke is determined in advance by the Sensei (how far in advance is the only variable).
