Can watching Aikido Instructional Video help you develop new skills?
Yes, if you approach your study in the right way!
What is the right way?
Well, if you view Aikido videos as entertainment, just like television, you'll probably pass the time in a trance.
But, if you decide to study, analyze, and think about the content of the Aikido video, then you can certainly learn a lot.
If you want to become an expert in Aikido, then you must practise several times a week. You may not have time to get to the dojo or training hall more than 2 or three times...
But, you can train at home, whenever you have 20 minutes spare.
" One does not need buildings, money, power or
status to practice the art of peace.
Heaven is right where you are standing,
that is the place to train "
Master Morihei Ueshiba - Founder of Aikido
You can easily practise deep breathing, relaxing into your centre, and work on postures,and basic steps, almost anywhere.
All you need is the motivation
Watch an Aikido instructional video in the same way. Have a notepad and pen handy, then pause the video and make notes as you go through the material, or actively go through a move or principle.
If there is something particular that you would like to try at the dojo, then maybe you can discuss it with your instructor. Or just test a principle on your training partner (with their agreement, of course).
You have probably noticed that most of the Aikido videos on Youtube are really just demonstrations. They all seem very similar and you may be entertained, but what have you really learned?
Aikido instructional video is very different!
It gives you the opportunity to truly learn something new. A principle that you can watch, learn from, and try out at your dojo. In this way you will gain a deeper understanding and develop your skills.
Can the study of Aikido principles really help you develop your skills?
Of course... if You Train Smart!
You can quickly develop amazing skills by studying an Aiki principle separate from a technique. This is part of the way I teach...
...with great results!
By studying Aikido instructional video in this way, you will have a deeper understanding and your techniques will become far more powerful.
There are only 3 methods of training...
1 - Learning techniques.
2 - Analyzing posture and form.
3 - Studying principles.
Most Aikido instructors actively teach the first two.
But, if you consciously work on aikido principles, then hard technical training will be far more beneficial for you. You'll know how and why techniques work, and be able to learn at a much faster rate.
Sounds good... right?

Students will gain a knowledge and understanding of aikido that many instructors simply do not teach. This may be because a class is not long enough to go into this sort of detail.
OR... they can't teach what they do not know!
Either way... in-depth analysis is available here!
