Pros
  • Like how he is really clear (and in English) in his explanation/demonstrations, friendly, down-to-earth, easy to follow.
  • Like how he points out the leg detail (paging John for these parts).
  • Like standup grappling/knockdowns in general.
  • like how he shows the follow up strike will get him next quite easily if he's not doing something.
  • like how he doesn't get too "abstract" (paging JW)

Caveats
  • Not sure about the static punch held out / not sure about those entries against a punch that goes in/out faster, but that doesn't really detract from the rest of the standup grappling/kao/elbow/brush/round motion/leg block/etc.

Other
  • these demos are clear about the standup grappling/throw/knockdown/"wave" like/"unbroken" characteristics of the art.
