You cannot put a time limit on how long it takes to become proficent in defending your self using aikido.People learn at different rates,some learn quickly others learn more slowly but both with hard training will attain the same goals.But before one of my students goes for Shodan or higher he or she will be able to defend theirself.Remember there are no favorites in the dojo.I believe the average student should have at least 3-4 years of training before testing for Shodan.
