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

I saw a nidan test recently where the testing sensei got a big grin and suddenly called up, for jiyu-waza, the candidate's two school-aged children. From the expressions on their faces they had known this was coming (probably the candidate did too) but it still made for quite an interesting jiyu-waza. The kids were inspired by the huge audience and gave her a very hard time!
