Re: Short INFORMAL video of some of my stuff (frame based waza)


I do thank you for posting the video. Openness is the only way we will advance our art.

But I hope you don't actually think you were working against resitance. Your uke was totally compliant and I can't say that there was any dynamic quality to what you demonstrated.

I don't mean to sound harsh, but I think it's time we start looking at where we are going with our training.
