In my organization, everything through Rokudan (6th dan) is a technical grade. Past that, Shichidan and Hachidan were basically time in grade and more honorific than anything else.

I am fine with that. In my organization, the time in grade requirements would take 25 years minimum for you to get to 6th dan. I am a Godan and have been at it for 45 years. If you have been legitimately at it for a quarter to a half century, I personally think you are going to get 99% of what it is that you need to know. But, if other organizations want to do it differently, that's fine too. When it is a 30 year old Hachidan, that is when I kinda scratch my head! LOL

Thanks.
