"When you can beat your peers at the same grade fairly consistently, and hold your own against the next grade up, it's time to think about testing. Obviously there are demonstrations of a range of techniques performed correctly to be done, but IIRC these are usually done before the test proper, and only once.
In a main test, you therefore have lots of people of a similar standard, all borderline cases. You fight some of them, and have to beat a certain proportion to reach the next grade (typically 5/7 for 1 dan, I think)."
Can anyone confirm this Judo belt promotion procedure?

Not really. It depends on the coach. Generally, we do it if you are beating people your rank all the time and the next above about 40-30% of the time, then you test.
And that's when I figured out that tears couldn't make somebody who was dead alive again. There's another thing to learn about tears, they can't make somebody who doesn't love you any more love you again. It's the same with prayers. I wonder how much of their lives people waste crying and praying to God. If you ask me, the devil makes more sense than God does. I can at least see why people would want him around. It's good to have somebody to blame for the bad stuff they do. Maybe God's there because people get scared of all the bad stuff they do. They figure that God and the Devil are always playing this game of tug-of-war game with them. And they never know which side they're gonna wind up on. I guess that tug-of-war idea explains how sometimes, even when people try to do something good, it still turns out bad.

If someone can win against others of his rank 3 times out of 4, would it make him eligible for testing?
