ShoDan

What I have seen is that when someone gets to Dan level they do not want to make any mistakes and look bad to others on the mat. So they start thinking to much and not moving and end up looking bad.

After about 2-3 months they seem to make a big transformation and move better than they ever did. They learn to relax because they have gotten use to the fact that they know the mechanics of techniques and now they just have to flow and not think.
