:/ In Aikikai Shodan only mean that you learned enough of the basics to finally start learning Aikido.
Agree Maggie - I was taught that nidan was a more significant level than shodan as the student was now showing aiki through their techniques.

To me its like shodan completes the apprenticeship and then the real work begins.
