Re: Love to hear your oppinions on this video.

You posted the clip and asked for feedback. People have taken a lot of time and trouble to give you that feedback. Now you are pretty much writing it off because it wasn't what you wanted to hear. You are only paying attention to the folks who are in agreement with you. I don't think you needed to ask for feedback if that's all you wanted to do.

I don't care if you agree with my thoughts on your clip or not. But I sure don't need to have you telling me I don't "get it" when I've given my feedback when it was requested. Next time just put the clip up under the heading "Tell me how much you like my clip...", then everyone will know to answer correctly.

Whoa there George.
First off I wasn't' talking to you when I made that comment. Secondly that's not what I meant. That wasn't meant as an attack, I'm just saying that most people are picking on tiny points and not getting at the heart of the matter.

I have thanked people many times for their comments. Even though hardly any of them agree with me, and many have been made as an attempt to belittle my training methods, and myself. I want to be able to look at my practice from different angles and that's exactly what this has given me. I'm very thankful.

However as much as I am open to everyone's input, I still have my own opinion. If anything on here drastically changed the way I feel about my training I'd be surprised, but I'm open to it.

You've got to understand much of what you're seeing is many years in the making, not just a flippant idea I had yesterday.

Sorry if I hurt your feelings George, or anyone else's.
