Re: Poll: How helpful are verbal instructions in learning aikido for you?

Any instruction I get from Sensei is helpful. ANY.

I have no idea what "learning type" I am, so I just take whatever I can get. Sometimes a verbal cure will give me an "aha! moment", otherwise it will give me a "huh? moment".

But then a few weeks or months later, that same verbal cue just might give me the aha moment I need! They are a lot more helpful now than they were in the beginning, when pretty much anything made me still stand there like a deer in headlights.
