Re: "Learning Aikido by Watching Aikido Video"
I agree with Don, I think you can learn from videos. However, as he points out experience might be the factor. A while back there was a group selling aikido 2nd and 5th dans by video. I don't think you can teach your self the subtleties without feedback and correction. I got in contact with the guy and gave him my opinion of his bastardization of the art . He pulled the 5th dan but last I checked the 2nd dan was still being offered. Smaks of fraud to me.
