I agree with James that if there are videos that are specific to your association then get those. Then after you gain a basic foundation judiciously select others for variation or deeper insight from another perspective. But if your just trying to learn what is expected of you in an ASU school then get the Saotome or Ikeda sensei videos. If you're looking to branch out to other points of view then select others. That is what I have done. I have Yamada Sensei's Power and Basics series along with Donovan Waite's ukemi videos. However, I also I really love the Aikido In Training videos even though they are more Iwama influenced. But the key to not getting yourself confused is to immerse yourself in the "way" of your dojo and then spread out from there.
