I've been on testing boards for the last 6/7 years now. Luckily, our organisation has a syllabus and set testing dates, so everyone is aware of the standards expected.As to what I'm looking for, it depends on the grade being taken. For the first grading I look for good body movement, balance and posture. The criteria change as the gradinge get harder. I hope that I will never be involved with an "empty ceremony".
