but you, unusually seemed to attack it - why?
I think the whole video (and it's "pseudo-real/look at me I'm really str33t feel" just irritated me. (yes cr@p bunkai was probably a little unfair)
It had high production values, but gave a false impression. The IMPLICATION (certainly enhanced by the youtube title) was that the video gave realistic strategies for handling multiple opponents in street encounters.... and yet the APPLICATIONS were dojo-centric and the senario was unrealistic. I don't have a problem with aspects of the gentlemans interpretation of Bassai Dai, just that it wasn't an appropriate setting.
The whole thing smacked of an ego-trip or being badly advised by a marketing/video production company.
Anyway Have a great Christmas
