6. Practical  Student must show proper execution of skill, sportsmanship, and intensity of this Rank.  Instructor will judge this from observing Three rounds lasting Four minutes each with 2 minutes rest in between. The first round should start with both students back to back with similar rank and size with the students sitting flat on their buttocks with legs in front of them. The second round the students should start on their knees, four feet across from one another.  At this level the instructor should emphasize having fun while wanting to also win. Tell them that they always win if they learn.  Tell them that you are looking for intensity, but remember to let go and anticipate their opponent to tap out. Remind them that champions want to win, not to hurt their opponent! The third round should be the same as the second round.  Use the third round to give your student feedback on what more you may be looking for and always encourage you students.  Tell them that you believe in them. They are working hard because they believe in YOU!
