Is it OK for a Sensei to supplement his/her teaching with Aikido books on the market?
I never understood things like this. If you can't get the technique in class with an instructor, how would you even hope to grasp it by a book or internet thread? Aikido books make great conversational pieces (heck, I have a slew of them from a bunch of different people), but they add about as much to your Aikido as watching a kung-fu movie. It is the difference between having a computer verses having the box to the computer.
