Re: Aikido 3D 2.0 and Donovan Waite

I think it is a great tuition DVD that demonstrates the basics of Aikido. For a beginner like myself this DVD is a valuable tool, for remembering the name of techniques, taisabaki movement and the many 3D views that clearly show ukemi. Sure the DVD is not explicit to the style I learn and study but Shiho nage is Shiho nage, Kote gaeshi is Kote geashi. It my not be the variation I am learning, but at least I do know the name of the technique that is expected from me, especially when I am Sempai to my training partner. As I become more senior I have been less reliant on the DVD.
