Re: Poll: How important is knowing step-by-step kihonwaza (basic techniques) for beginning aikido students?

For a total begginer I think learning how to roll, be uke, dojo ettiquette and seeing and doing a wide range of techniques to get them into the swing of things is a good thing, but after a little while they will need to begin to learn the basics properly. They are the foundation of all aikido afterall. If your basics suck, then so will everything else!

They're all screaming about the rock n roll, but I would say that it's getting old. - REFUSED.
