Re: what makes a test great


Can anyone else share their expectations for 6th kyu testing?
Originally i was only reallying thinking of higher level tests... 1kyu and above.

With respect to 6th kyu tests, it depends somewhat on what 6th kyu means to your dojo - is this your first test? Some places 6th kyu might be your third or fourth test.

Assuming it is your first or second test. Do the techniques without having to think about them. When the technique is called you should be able to do it straight away. Move with your uke; the techniques dont have to "work". Dont fall over. Dont go too fast, normal training speed is good (unless you are in a dojo where people chat about things a lot.)
