Re: Poll: How helpful is visually examining techniques in learning aikido for you?

There are blind people doing aikido. So apparently seeing a technique done isn't absolutely necessary for learning it. So how important is it then?

I answered very helpful to this one, and critically helpful to feeling. To me, while of course seeing a technique helps learn the movements more quickly, I need to feel it to know what is actually going on between tori and uke.
