Hi Jim,

Of course, rank can be earned by some people in the minimum time, but in my view that should never become the average time that rank is awarded. Some are obviously in better situations for achieving higher rank quicker than others. Twenty-five years of quality practice seems appropriate time for rokudan to me for average training circumstances.
25 years of training? What??? long time.......
