Yoshimitsu Yamada, a direct student of O Sensei for more than ten years, is an 8th dan and the chief instructor at the New York Aikikai.

He is the author of Aikido Complete and has made multiple aikido training tapes.

Yamada Sensei is well known for his clear and strong basic technique. He teaches seminars all over the world where thousands of students attend his classes.

Quote:

"We must keep the spirit of budo no matter how we practice."

Q: You were one of the earlier uchideshi at the Aikikai. What year did you start?

A: When I joined as an uchideshi only Tamura Sensei and Arikawa Sensei were there. Yasuo Kobayashi was still in college. He came to the dojo every day. I entered when I was 17. I am 53 now, so it must have been 1955.
