Dan Tests: Whatever the Aikikai charges. $0 markup. It is also tradition that we give hakama and black belt to new yudansha.
When one becomes a Yudansha it is traditional he/she does not buy their first Blackbelt and Hakama but are handed down a used one from a senior Yudansha very often as a token of appreciation and friendship

Eat, Sleep, Exercise and watch out for cars
