it's supposed to take a few years, around 3 if i remember correctly. there is a grading system that is supposed to be followed and you're only supposed to be able to advance a rank after a certain period of time.

don't focus on getting shodan or it'll take longer to do than if you were to just focus on improving technique.

the best dojo usually promote ranks slower than bad dojo. ensures the students are skilled.
