    I believe you have to do at least one with the other hand. I can't find it in my manual though.
    The Do of Kempo
    Think of yourself as a bladed weapon that requires sharpening daily. Remember the finest edge will dull the quickest, so don’t rest on past accomplishments, keep training. As your technique becomes sharper your skills will be more difficult to improve, then you must increase the realism and intensity of your training. To live the martial way one must train their entire lives.

    Thanks for all the great info. I messed around a little with some transfers yesterday, and I agree with other posters here on staying with what's safe and easy. I don't intend on being barely able to pass (I can get over 100 now) and having to worry about a few reps from switching - just want to be the best I can . From all the advice I've heard, the snatch test isn't really the hardest part of the RKC, and if it kicks your butt you have some endurance work to do...

    On a related note: a new PR for me - just did 80 straight RKC-approvable snatches (I've been training with an RKC II) with no break in 3:30! (24kg). I switched hands every 10 reps using a low swing, although I may think about raising that number to 12 or 15... we'll see.
