Ai symbol Aikido ranking?

I am still new to aikido, (a little more than 2 months), and am wondering if someone can tell me what the requirements for ranking are, or recommend a site that does. I found a site by accident, and forgot to bookmark it. It stated the minimum requirements for 5th kyu, 4th kyu, then 3rd, 2nd, 1st, shodan, etc. It was something like: 5th kyu must know sankyo, nikyo, kotegaeshi, etc. Then 4th kyu must know what 5th kyu does, and then ______ (fill in the blank because I don't remember.) It was for the Hombu Dojo, dated 196x? I know it will vary from dojo to dojo, but it will give me a baseline. Thanks in advance.

It's all about connection.
