Re: "Learning Aikido by Watching Aikido Video"

If you have Aikido experience videos you might benefit from viewing Aikido videos. My weapons understanding and training has greatly benefited from using Saito's weapons.When I was testing for Kyu ranks, Yamada's 3 set video helped me with testing requirements.

Aikido is a partner practice as well as one that needs to watched over by teacher. You might be able to pick up on the terminology and get a idea of what is expected of you during class. But without supervision, you wont be doing yourself any good.

Dont make me, make you, grab my wrist.
