I suspect the philosophy is much like TJF's actually; I need to be fit enough to competently see the grading through. Fitness is a technique. To be honest I completely agree. If it were just constant Martial Arts then that wouldn't phase me in the slightest. It's the prospect of quantities of press-ups and like that will form the "warm up". Press ups seem to be bane of my existence. These days I'm limited not so much by ability or dedication to training and my chronic injuries.

Thanks for that. That does help.
