Thanks for the info guys! I agree with Colleen about learning the techniques from an instructor first. Truth is I studied aikido a few years ago and am planning to return to a local Ki Society and resume classes. I mainly wanted to find a "Ki Society tape" to work on my preliminary warmups before I start studying again. (I currently work nights and can't make class yet.)
I have a book "Aikido and the Dynamic Sphere" that Montgomery Sensei recommended years back.
Thanks again for your input! Oh by the way, the style I study is Shin Shin Toitsu Aikido. (Tohei Sensei's aikido.)

You'll probably want to take a look at the tape Kashiwaya Sensei has released that gives the new Test Criteria for 5th Kyu thru 2nd Kyu. You can find it at the Northern California Ki Society website
