Donovan Waite Sensei, 7th Dan Shihan is a martial arts professional who has dedicated his life to the practice of the teachings of Aikido. With more than 30 years of experience and over ten years as Uchi Deshi under Yoshimitsu Yamada Sensei at the New York Aikikai, Waite Sensei has developed his own style that he continues to teach in his Philadelphia Dojo and all around the world.
What started as an experiment for creating a next generation training tool, quickly drew attention and gained momentum. Why not apply modern film-making and video-game technologies to create a new breed of exploration tool and revolutionize what books, videos or DVD’s have delivered so far.
Following the success of the original Aikido3D program, and after 5 years in the making, we are very pleased to introduce an all-new and improved Aikido3D 2.0 to our world-wide user base and to all Aikido enthusiasts around the globe!
- We are closely watching Aikido3D’s impact while gathering as much feedback from users as we possibly can. Many new feature in version 2.0 came from users requests and suggestions.
- With an already rapidly developing list of more requests, we will keep evolving and adding content to Aikido3D.
- Visit www.tkd3d.com for the best in Taekwondo Training!
- We are also working on applying similar 3D methods to other Sports and Martial Arts.
Check back with us for updates and developments.
