Question Query re first grading in Aikido?

Apologies if this has been asked before, but I cannot locate it here.

When a student takes a first grading in Aikido, what is likely to be expected of them in terms of what they are to be asked to do?

I am guessing all the breakfalls and some of the forms that you learn first? Do they require written work in terms of essays or study notes?

It all depends on the style. Your best bet is to ask your teacher.

6th kyu are the beginning of aikido and 1th kyu is several years late with everything except jo/bokken/iai (maybe). "Dan" is doing everything better.

Re: Query re first grading in Aikido?

It's actually a pretty cool study. everyone had the same singular source of inspiration, but how to pass it on? How to teach it to the next generation? Tomiki, Yoshinkan, Shin Shin Toitsu Aikido - no resemblance at white belt levels. It's easier, IMO, to tell a kyu level students lineage than a black belt's lineage. What is required for early ranks seems to be about the teacher and their understanding of how to teach.
