Well, the USAF-East doesn't have a teaching requirement for higher yudansha rank. I know several fifth dans who have taught only a couple of classes over twenty-five years, and those only by the default of being the highest rank present.

I think you would be able to find a few seventh dans in Japan who never taught a class.
