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

Hi all, first time poster here.

I find verbal instructions very helpful, especially when learning an unfamiliar technique.

As a beginner, my first instructor would always tell me how to move my wrist by saying things like: "Look at your palm, or "Look at your wrist watch" (for the other direction), and, of course, "Pretend you are scooping ice cream."

Peace,

Tim Olds
