We've already got plenty of video of Ueshiba, if video worked that well then everybody would be able to do and/or understand what he was doing already.

Best,

I wasn´t speaking about Rob and you know it.
It seems you allready know, partly assisted by the films of O´sensei I guess.
In my view we have very few video´s of O´sensei available today.
Films are no more accurate than words in the sence we most often only see what
we are looking for and allready know in advance.
It takes thorough study to watch a film and understand what is actually presenting itself, or read a book for that matter. In that sence films and words are similar in the sence they rely on language.

Respect and regards
Lars
