You missed the point totally. This video is to show what's effective. What techniques will work and what techniques are just unrealistic. It's about self defense, not about accurate technique. Real life application is the goal, real altercations is the focus.
No. I did not miss the point totally.

All it shows is where these guys are at and where they are at
is not very far along. They make all sorts of elementary mistakes over and over again that prevents them from being very effective at all.

The idea that this shows "what techniques will work and what techniques are just unrealistic" is total BS, but I do not expect you to see that. Most won't.
