The Kyudo Kyohon describes this level as, “The shooting form, the shooting technique, and the method of formal movement should be suitable for the level, with evidence of refinement in the shooting. In particular, progress should be shown over previous levels.” So here, in comparison to all that has come before, the judgement is more subjective, and essentially you’ve reached the 5-dan level when you shoot like someone at the 5-dan level. People testing for this likely know what that means but the questions may still be of interest to all. Some of these are a bit hard to understand because they refer to specific statements in the Kyudo Kyohon.
