Probably more for WTF practitioners (since I do WTF) but would still be interested in knowing opinions of other schools of thought ... This seems to me one of the biggest kept secret as none of the seniors I have spoken to have an answer (or are willing to provide). What can one do to be considered for double-grading? I certainly don't mean from a perspective of seeking shortcuts (if you fail me in a grading it will make me work harder not put me off) but the sense of achievement for having being considered, and the feeling your instructor thinks you are that good! So what do instructors generally look for when grading. The techniques that we practice hundreds of times (in a lot of the cases in front of seniors) are the same we perform grading time, what can we do more for that 'perfect' grading? I have at times been given an 'A' in my gradings and I have at times walked away with the feeling the grading couldn't have gone better but I am sure my instructors eye sees things differently. My last Kup grading approaches and I hope it to be the best so far Pilsung.
