I think anyone reasonable would disagree with that Stephan. Safe to say most instructors would require at least a basic understanding of the Sanshin No Kata for 9th kyu, much less Shodan. All that said, its not to imply, as Barry pointed out, that it dosen't happen. The core issue is the honoring of rank from another school, at the end of the day if you are a teacher in the Bujinkan then Hombu is the last word, we all know that. I do not see how anyone could propose not to honor a rank from Hombu whether the individual (in the mind of the assessor) deserves it or not. If you don't like what they are doing or have done simply hold them back till you do; and develop a relationship in the process that will allow for any inconsistencies to be addressed without tearing someone down.
