Re: Poll: How effective is learning aikido through a purely visual media (videos, DVDs, software, etc)?

If all you are relying on is Dvds books and stuff like that to learn aikido then i would defintely answer "not at all effective" If you are using these as a visual aid to help you better understand what your sensei is teaching then i would say go for it.

But i think its ridiculous to try to learn something physical from watching a tape, whether it be aikido , judo, tae kwon do , or ballet for that matter.
