What rank is Steven Seagal in Aikido?

Seagal began his adult life as an aikido instructor in Japan, and is currently a 7th dan in aikido. He is considered the first foreigner to ever own and operate an aikido dojo in Japan.

Let me remind you that past 6th dan, you do not get another dan by studing the art. The 7th dan and forth, is presented to the person by it's contribution to the art. Seagal gave a contribution to Aikido and some masters to the art had not reach the 7th dan.
