Re: Aikido3D

No problem, guys. I hoped I addressed some concerns that some people where having about it regarding ukemi, the movement, and the intent of the creators. Oh, my biggest critique that I missed is that sometimes when you zoom the uke and nage go out of the frame. It happens on a few techniques, but overall it's a great feature.

Has anybody tried it out? Looks pretty interesting.

Re: aikido 3d program

Justin, I invested in it. It is pretty awesome and very well worth the $$. You can use it as a valuable training tool. Some of the techniques are different from what I am used to, I mean, the exact manner in which the techniques are executed. Nevertheless, the 3d images allow you to watch technique from many angles, allow you to remove hakamas to better watch footwork, if you are familiar with the technique and ukemi of Donovan Waite sensei, all the more reason to invest in this. Trust me.

Re: Aikido3D

Hey all

I just got my aikido3d program in the mail and it looks pretty cool.

Ran into a problem though, some of the wording for techniques is different than what I am used to in yoshinkan. Could someone tell me how I go about finding some kind of word translation for Aikiki techniques to yoshinkan techniques?

Some of the words are familiar but many are not.

Cheers

Check out the index of "Aikido and the Dynamic Sphere", if you've got it. It has a few cross references.

Re: Aikido3D

have it james but lent it to a buddy. I'm surprised at how interested people can be in Aikido even if they don't practice.

That's perfect thanks Jun!

Re: Aikido3D

I'm living with this fellow for the next 6 months and his life will literally be in my hands every day- I'm confident I can coax it back from him. OR just take it back when he's not around, locks only stop honest theives

Never the less that quote carries a lot of wisdom!

Great Aikido training CD/DVD

http://www.aikido3d.com/

I went to a training camp this past weekend and they showed us this training CD/DVD. It's really good and I think it could be really useful.

Re: Great Aikido training CD/DVD

Thanks for sharing, Carien, It is a popular piece of software, and I believe it is advertized on this very website.

Re: Aikido3D

I notice the first posts about this program were made near the end of 2004, and since the producers website states

"With an already rapidly developing
list of suggestions and requests,
we will keep on developing
Aikido3D with new volumes of
additional features and techniques!"

I wondered whether in the two and a half years since it came out, they had made any changes/additions to it. It still seems to be from 5th kyu to 1st kyu, but maybe they have added more techniques?

I received this email back in March:

Quote:
Dear Aikido3D users and fellow Aikidoka,

I would like to thank you all for the great support and amazing feedback with the first Aikido3D title!

We have been getting many requests for some additional Aikido3D titles so we wanted to give everybody in the Aikido3D community a quick update.

Thanks to the great response to our survey within current users, we have decided to produce additional Aikido3D titles, based on your requests, suggestions and ideas.

From analyzing your feedback, it seems like there are three focal points of interest:
  1. Weapons (Bokken and Jo)
  2. Advanced techniques
  3. Ukemi and basic exercises
I am happy to let you know we have already started the work on these titles, scheduled for later this year.

As promised, the new titles (once available), will be offered to current Aikido3D users first, and at a special rate.

Last but not least, for those of you who have friends or relatives practicing Taekwondo, please visit www.tkd3d.com or forward this link to them. We think they will appreciate you letting them know about TKD3D, an amazing training tool, now available for both WTF Style and Sport Taekwondo.

Thanks,
Shai Golan
Aikido3D Team

Aikido3D feedback

I'm looking for feedback from anyone who has used Aikido3D.

Of course nothing replaces actual training, but as a supplementary tool is it useful? And why? or Why not?

Aikido3D?

Hello again. I'm off the fence and have joined a wonderful Dojo. Teacher is patient and well trained, all the students are very helpful. I asked in another thread about learning tools and Aikido3d was mentioned. From hat I can find on YouTube it seems that it can be a great tool. Does anyone tied it and do you have any opinions?

Re: Aikido3D?

I didn't care much for Aikido3D. It is a well-done product, very reasonably priced and could be helpful for some folks. It is based on USAF flavored Aikido, and I think it represents that branch extremely well. It just wasn't my cup of tea. It is cheap enough that if you were to buy it and didn't get from it what you hoped, you'd still be able to pay the mortgage and eat that month. The producers put a lot of hard work into it and it is of excellent quality.
