...It is utter nonsense to try and hide behind excuses like "you don't understand" without then going out and showing people that they really do not understand (eg- poster with the videos). To Dan's credit, he gets out there and can demonstrate and teach what he talks about. If you are not willing to walk your talk, then you deserve the legitimate criticisms that you will receive.
Just my 2 cents.

Two very good points Marc.
I've never seen the like in Budo.
The tenet of budo was always... to be effective. Everyone keeps talking about how effective this or that teacher was, how amazing this or that teacher is...
Now it's, everyone is equal and everyone's practice is validated.
That's why I keep saying Budo is like how a good education should be- not everyone gets and "A."
All the best
