Re: Poll: How effective is learning aikido through a purely visual media (videos, DVD
The important thing is the person who is viewing the material and what their goals are. If the person has no Aikido training and is hoping to completely learn the art through films/videos, then it is useless. If the person is training in Aikido and is using the material to deepen understanding or expand their repertoire, then it could be very useful. The same experience can effect people differently.
