comment How can a teacher recognize that a student has progressed from 'ha' to 'ri'?
Although I've provided my best answer, I'm increasingly skeptical that this question has an answer. I think it provokes interesting discussion, but the question may involve too many abstractions and subjective elements to permit an objective, empirical answer.

comment How can a teacher recognize that a student has progressed from 'ha' to 'ri'?
Loosely, yes. I wouldn't use the term "particular drill". I suspect that the student's performance during sparring would reveal whether the student had progressed from limited improvisation to a deeper understanding of the fundamentals.
