Re: Poll: How important is solo training (ie by yourself) in your aikido training?
i agree with most of you. visualizing technique is supported by scientific study (not that that ultimately matters). your nervous system works much the same way with visualizing technique as it does when you actually move. so, go ahead and read, but buy the video if it's technique you're after.
i forgot solo ukemi practice. silly of me. Ukemi is the foundation of all we do. i am a poor martial artist if i can't protect myself.
