with learning a method using shortcuts is that the
"pure" method becomes unnatural and difficult. vi

then you should be good from one vi to the next. Even
in my case, using the arrow keys seems more natural
for jumping around (than using the jkl and ; keys).
This is even more true for me since I use the Dvorak
keyboard layoun and j, k, l and ; are not close
together (well, j and k are -- and l and ; are too;
but still not quick or easy to use for navigation.)
