Re: Poll: How effective is learning aikido through a purely visual media (videos, DVDs, software, etc)?
On a slightly related topic - what about this one...
What about suggesting that one cannot learn Aikido from a video AT ALL, but having no problem suggesting (i.e. acting thusly) that one can tell how bad a person sucks, how much their practice is missing, how ignorant they are to the deeper issues of the art, how bad their teacher is, etc., simply by reading something they wrote on the Internet? Where does all the "you got to feel it to truly know" stuff go then?
