Re: Alright already...

These are the time requirements for testing at Aikikai Hombu Dojo:
5th kyu- 30 days of training
4th kyu- 40 days of training after receiveing 5th kyu
3rd kyu- 50 days of training after receiving 4th kyu
2nd kyu- 50 days of training after receiving 3rd kyu
1st kyu- 60 days of training after receiving 2nd kyu
Shodan- 70 days of training after receiving 1st kyu
Nidan- 200 days of training after receiving shodan, minimum of 1 year
San dan- 300 days of training after receiving nidan, minimum of 2 years
Yondan- 300 days of training after receiving sandan, minimum of 2 years
A day of training means any day you train, no matter how many hours. So if you train for one hour or for 5, you get one "credit" towards testing.
