I have never really enjoyed the thought of Competition or Gradings, but they are both an important part of karate. The uneasiness in competition has helped me prepare for the uneasiness in grading and vice-versa.
We should also remember that we are all part of a Club and an Association, neither can develop unless the members are keen to represent them, both competing and behind the scenes.
The PM talks about the "Big Society" but in our "Little Society" should it not be, "What can my Club / Association do for me?" but "What can I do for my Club / Association"?

If you are not grading in February you should be working towards your grading in June, don't leave it until May and realise it is too late again to focus your efforts.
