It would figure that many of the ki society groups wouldn't go through hombu.

I'm interested in finding the shodan criteria for the different major Aikido groups. I'm looking for consistencies in their syllabus.

Thanks for the help.
By criteria, are you referring to testing requirements? As in what is on the test?

smaller people -- show ability to be
gentle as well as strong)

Any technique Against Keri
