Not a silly question at all. Yes, when he turns 15, he will need to re-test for full shodan (and concurrently test for nidan-sho). In Uechi-Ryu, the only different requirement for the different Dan grades is the rank kata so he will need to demonstrate both Seisan (for full shodan) and Seiryu (for nidan-sho). Assuming he continues training, he will then be eligible to test for full nidan at 17 or 18 - before he leaves for college.

Excellent! Assuming he passes (which i am confident he will) being a nidan in uechi-ryu at 18 will be no joke! Is he planning to stick with it or start cross training in a grappling style too?

Our dojo also teaches Aikido, which I've tried to encourage him to try out. They even have a convenient Saturday morning class, right before the class we usually go to. I find it's a really nice warmup for the Uechi-Ryu class. I'd really like for him to stick with it, because as our director said after the testing, "Karate is like boing water. If you take away the heat, it stops bubbling within you". That's one of the things I love about our school --after you pass your test, our instructors will give you feedback on things you can improve upon.
