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

I can imagine a blind person learning aikido. For this reason, I technically should have voted "very helpful."

However, I voted "critically helpful." Certainly, if I were running a dojo, I wouldn't waste anyone's time trying to teach a blind man aikido and would consider the ability to see essential to learning aikido at my dojo.

That may seem insensitive to some, but to me it's realistic. If I were to go blind today, I would stop training.
