Re: Aikido3D

Hi Miriam,
Aikido3D is a good reference tool but I would suggest that its a more of a supplement to dojo training.

There are some great details in the descriptions and the ability to move the point of view, to remove the hakama of uke and nage (tori) or to vary the speed of the technique make it a good tool.

That said, you really need a partner to train and you won't get the kind of feedback you would in the dojo from a qualified instructor.

I've been using the program virtually since its release and find the most value in being able to review technqiues I've already practiced many times in class.

Where I would potentially see a lot of value for a new student would be in the demonstration of techniques with the associated nomenclature. It will certainly give you a good primer in terms of the japanese terms for the techniques.

Best of luck.

Re: Aikido3D

Hello Miriam,

Aikido 3D is a good as a supplement to your training as Sean said. If you are in Calgary visit our dojo www.calgaryaikikai.com as you are more than welcome to practice with us. If you are in Edmonton there is a good group who practice out of the Y downtown. http://members.shaw.ca/communityaikido/ all the best.

Cheers Andrew

Re: Aikido3D

Onegaishimasu, I have found the aikido 3d to be very helpful for reviewing techniques and footwook sans hakamas.

Re: Aikido3D

An old post, but for those who may have a similar question down the line I will throw in my 2 cents.

As the others have pointed out it is a nice tool if you are already practicing Aikido... by itself I would say you would be hard pressed to actually pick up the techniques/style of Aikido effectively.

Most training 'videos' are like this - though there is one acception to this, and I saw it in the BJJ community. The Gracies, by far, have the best beginner videos that I have seen for a martial art...
... again mileage may very, and having experience with an art is sure to help, but I was blown away with the level of detail they went into explaining techniques. [You often get less explanation in many dojos!]

But that is BJJ and not Aikido... have not seen anything at that level of instruction out there for Aikido - but then again the reason to this perhaps reflects in what you see in many Aikido dojos and their philosophy to training.
