Now official: Shodan

By Dmitry Kann 1 min read This post in Russian 0284

And here we are, almost four months after the exam I officially possess a Shodan Aikido Aikikai:

Shodan certificate.
Shodan certificate.

The diploma has been solemnly granted by Marc Jongsten (who also took the exam) during a short ceremony at Aikido Centrum Leiden.

Besides this—handwritten—certificate I was also given an official Hombu Dojo passport, instead of the former one, issued by the DAF:

Aikidoka’s passport.
Aikidoka’s passport.

This stuff is quite expensive I must say: shodan (first dan) costs € 125, nidan (second dan) is € 175. ■
