Re: YouTube: Donovan Waite Sensei: Katatetori Kotegaeshi (ai-hanmi)

Waite Shihan is a brilliant Aikidoka and genuinely warm man as well. I am always intrigued by the subtle differences in how he, Henry Smith Shihan, Irv Faust Sensei, Konigsberg Shihan, Jerry Zimmerman Sensei etc. (all classmates at New York Aikikai) subtly interprete each technique differently. I feel that there is something profound to be learned by recurrently receiving instruction from each of them upon my execution of the same technique.
