No More Overseas Renshi tests!

On  page 22 of the November 2012 kyudo magazine there is an announcement that will greatly affect overseas seminars.  If I am reading the article correctly it says that testing in overseas seminars will now be up to godon only.  No renshi or rokudan tests.

I am surprised this issue was not debated and announced by the IKYF.  Perhaps it was and I just didn't hear about it.  So, it appears that if you want to test for renshi or above you will now have to travel to Japan.

The article also mentions that due to the large number of participants the possibility of multiple European Kyudo Federation seminars in multiple locations is being considered.
