Re: what is my first Kyu?
This all depends on which style you are affiliated with. Your sempai should be able to help you prepare for this test when it nears. There are various videos available, but I've found that nothing quite equals training on the mat with someone who had experienced the testing criteria first hand. Sempai should be the ones responsible for this, someone had to take the time to help them attain that rank, and by accepting that rank they accept responsibility. That's how the sempai-kohai system should work.
