Re: Poll: How meaningful is your aikido rank to you?

It does not mean much to me either BUT at the level I train, at the place I train, I will have to eventually grade. This is necessary to maintain the synergy between skill level and rank within the dojo - never an easy thing. With that in mind I take training for the next level quite seriously. So yes (contradiction alert) it is important.

I voted Very Meaningful but am not happy with it.
