That being said, is this even feasible?


I don’t think it is. You need to train with a good teacher at the very least once a week.

What is the general opinion on trying to learn from DVDs?


In my opinion these sorts of DVD programs aren’t there to teach you budo but are there to make money for the people producing them. I would only recommend Hatsumi-sensei’s books and videos at this time but even then you still need to train with a good teacher.

I have taken other martials arts before to some level, Kung Fu, Jujitsu and Aikido, so I have a grasp of footwork, balance, opponent momentum.


But footwork, balance, distance, etc is a little different than these other forms of budo.

My honest opinion is that if you can’t find a good teacher whose classes you can attend regularly then you are better off finding a good teacher in a different martial art and train there.
