Re: bowing during testing

Then again what about Yoshinkan?
Depends on the Yoshinkan dojo and the customs they follow. However none that I have come across bow to shomen (O'Sensei or Shioda Kancho). Usually, you bow to the testing instructor, then your partner. You reverse that at the end. I'm sure other schools may do something different.
