YouTube: Donovan Waite at Long Island Aikikai



Here's an Aikido video of Donovan Waite (7th dan, Old City Aikido, Philadelphia PA) teaching in 2013 at the Long Island Aikikai.

From the Old City Aikido website: "Donovan Waite Sensei began practicing Aikido in 1969, at a very young age. As a fourteen-year-old he received his 1st Degree Black Belt from Ralph Reynolds Sensei under the direction of T.K. Chiba Shihan in Birmingham, England. Since then, he has spent over four decades pursuing a deeper understanding of Aikido. Along that path, Donovan has had the opportunity to train under many of Aikido's foremost instructors. In 1984 he apprenticed himself to Yoshimitsu Yamada Shihan, chairman of the United States Aikido Federation and chief instructor at the New York Aikikai. For over ten years he was Uchi Deshi, or live-in student, and he still holds a weekly teaching position at the New York dojo. Besides holding the rank of 7th Degree Black Belt, Donovan was also the youngest westerner to ever be awarded the title of Shihan (teacher of teachers).

"For the last twenty years Waite Shihan has worked tirelessly to help to spread Aikido around the world. He has traveled extensively, holding seminars on six different continents. He currently serves as a member of the United States Aikido Technical Committee and personally oversees many USAF dojos. Old City Aikido is proud to serve as Waite Shihan's headquarters dojo, where he teaches regular classes whenever he is in the United States."
