GRAHAM BURT was an English immigrant who brought Aikido to Newfoundland in the 1970s and taught the first generation of Aikidoka in the province. He died in a tragic swimming accident in 1980. This annual seminar is a tribute to his memory and to his pioneering initiative.

DONOVAN WAITE SHIHAN is a certified instructor within the United States Aikido Federation, and the chief instructor at Aikido of Center City in Philadelphia (http://www.aikidocentercity.com/27.html).

Spectators are invited to observe the seminar. Admission is free.

We look forward to seeing you at the seminar!
