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

The only thing I would add to this is that you will only be able to get as far as you can imagine. To cross that boundary you need feedback from outside yourself (ie a teacher)... Not to say that visualising isn't a very valuable training tool.

I think the same goes for watching a video, what one is going to see, and which neurons are going to fire, is going to depend on what the person watching imagines to be going on.
