Sorry I dont have any class notes to share this week. Mark and I went to Tokyo for a Kyudo test. I passed and received my shodan in Kyudo. (really, its the first rank - no big deal. The only way you WONT pass is if you screw up and shoot somebody with one of your arrows.)

They tested people up to yondan. Of 65 people who tested for yondan, only 10 received it.
(It costs about 65$ to take the test, so it sucks not to pass)
200 Japanese people showed up for their kyudo test and about 120 people passed.
I am told that for most people, failing the godan test in kyudo is expected. Not only once or twice, but 5 or 6 times is normal.
Think about that - you have to expect to fail several times before passing. Not only that, you have to pay 65$ every time you take it.
