I'm sure I'm being trolled but here's more information for for you:
Dan grade testing is annually at the residential summer school (maximum cost is 400E, I paid 350E).Membership fees for the year range from 20E to 60E.I was examined by a 6th dan, there were also about a dozen other yudansha present to assist with the evaluation.Certificate from the Doshu is usually presented on his behalf the following year at summer school.International Aikido Federation yudansha licence will arrive in few months.It's customary in the dojo to continue wearing a white belt until the licence has arrived.The hakama is worn once permission is given by sensei. I was given a gift of one from him to wear in the dojo some time ago. I will now wear it in other clubs too.
Shouldn't that be 'magic pants in a twist'. Mwwaaaahaahhaahaaaaaa! I'm so funneee.

Style: Aikido, Aikiken, Aikijo
I wonder why Aikikai Italia charges 150 E for the Shodan test...
