In 1999 he first went to San Leandro as uchi deshi to Pat Hendricks Sensei, returning 5 times since. In 2003 he received his San Dan from Pat Sensei and in 2005 went as uchi deshi to Hitohira Saito Sensei in Iwama. In 2006 David taught at the CAA meeting as the division 1 representative and on the 2007 San Diego Aikido gasshuku honouring Morihiro Saito Sensei. In  2015 David received his Go Dan from Pat Sensei, the strength of his aikido remains in the basic taught by Saito Sensei in a very traditional format.
