I need to concentrate on learning the basic techniques as well as I can. I think I can learn something from a DVD that will accelerate the learning process in the dojo. Don´t forget I am still at the "which hand am I supposed to be using stage?".
That exactly is the reason to watch out for a DVD showing the basics of the style of aikido you practice, or better Laurent teaches to you.
"Which hand?" or even more "which foot?" differs from style to style.
