As a new student, I was hoping someone could recommend an Aikido video as a supplement to lessons. There are times at home when I could use a "refresher" on techniques.

Different teachers will teach techniques differently, especially at the beginning level in which the "basic form" is usually taught in one way or another. At your stage, I think it's important to get supplemental information (eg videos, books) that correspond to what you're learning. Some folks teach these basic techniques differently than you're used to which may make things difficult. Also, some people may even use different terminology than you do which may be a bit confusing.

Bottom line: Depends on your teacher's approach to aikido. It's best if you ask him or her...
