    Personally, I don't care if you just got a shodan in basket weaving. You atleast worked for it and earned it...(I assume you did).

    Congratulations!

    PS. Good job putting this in the YMAS.

    You worked hard for something and you got it. Aikido or not, you've earned some Kudos. Congrats.
