I have agree with you and Hanzou twice in the same month. I'm going to get my head examined lol. But I'm with you on the pass thing. A pass is a pass. As someone who trains because it's something I like to do, I could fail every test and it wouldn't change my enjoyment of training. Sort of like people who draw and paint as a hobby. They may not be the greatest but it's what they like to do. I almost fogot this, when I went through my drama. The big question probably shouldn't be "Do I deserve an outstanding grade" but Who am I training for? Me or the grade? In a world where belts are handed out like candy, A Pass instead of an outstanding sounds good to me. If I had a gave a grade rank of "outstanding" then I would want that to be something not so easy to obtained.
