Do you know the requirements to pass 1-dan, 2-dan and 3-dan?
And more importantly, have you been practicing to satisfy the requirements?
3 dan is one big hurdle in kendo. Probably your first tough hurdle in your kendo life. I've seen many people struggling to pass 3 dan, especially kendo late starters. So why is it so hard to pass exams in kendo? Are you not training hard? Of course, you do! So what is it then?
Do you know what 1-dan kendo, 2-dan kendo or 3-dan kendo? I am asking you because if you know them, you can pass your exam. I will tell you more specifically the reasons why you might fail.
"You simply don't know what you should do at your exam."
Simple, right? Once you know what you should do for each exam, you can plan your training and you can do so with goals.
"There is no way that you will fail if you satisfy the requirements at your exam."
Kendo grade shows your achievement. Isn't it right? When you pass 1-dan, this means your skills are 1-dan level. When you pass 3-dan, your skills are 3-dan level, and your new journey will start to get your 4-dan.
As you move up in grade, your kendo levels up.
Knowing the requirements gives you specific goals in your training. So your training will be goal-oriented rather than mere hard training. Which one is better, training hard without knowing what you should be working on to improve OR
Training Hard with Specific Goals
