Ah, how nice, I will mention to Furuya Sensei that you found his tapes helpful!
Yes, when I started in aikido, I found the tapes clear and easy to understand and containing a good and accurate overview of the art. As I have progressed in my practice (I am now 1st Dan) and beginners ask about videos, I always recommend his tapes. Unfortunately, I was a flood victim here in Houston and my tapes were all lost in the 4 feet of water that came in the house. At any rate,they were a great help to me.
