Don't confuse the sempai/kohai thing with the ranking thing. (Most of us in western dojos aren't doing the sempai/kohai thing, btw, even if we think we are)
If you have a kohai and that person is promoted above you, they don't become your sempai. They're still your kohai, they just happen to outrank you.
I'm glad that I read through all the posts here because that was the first point I was going to respond too .

To the main point of the thread, both Dan and Lynn have said pretty much what I would. Whether it's someone else or myself, the grade is irrelevent, all that's important is how I practice.
