How are the video demonstrations coming? My credit card is ready.

James responded on Mar-24-2017 at 11:39 AM:

Well, PR, it will all be free if it ever gets up.

Sean took 3 hours of video then got called out of town on work.

My girl took just as much video and can't figure how to get it to anybody as her phone abides by some kind of proprietary BS.

Charles has hours and hours of video footage he will not post as the cinematography does not conform to his sense of perfection.

Three other people have footage they will not post or release.

Next stop is Oliver, who actually posts stuff he gets on video. I'll se what we can do.

Imagine if I wanted to sell it and these people got self-conscious about making sure everything was perfect, that none of my beard hairs were out of place, imagine how long that would take?

I hate seeing and hearing myself on video but am still driven to do this to satisfy the desire of our readers to supplement that knucklehead science that appears in writing with video.

Basically, it's my fault for having no ability, equipment or interest in this area.

This seems strange, but I know of over 40 hours of coaching, training, fighting footage from sessions that people thought were very instructive, that these same people refuse to post on You Tube, or have simply lost it. I gave three hours of video involving the biggest minimal gear stick event ever fought on the east coast [involving the #2 fighter in the world] to Cory to post on his Modern Fighter site. This was filmed by a guy that was actually in the ring, moving round. Cory did not like some of the camera motion so tossed the last copy of the DVDs that I had. But never fear, PR, I will continue to hit bags and people with sticks and bats and explain what the mechanics are in front of cameras—and one day, maybe, something will get on YouTube.

"

If a picture's worth a thousand words, imagine how many words a video would be worth. "

Hmmm. At 30 frames a second an hour would be 108,000,000 words.

Tell Sean, Charlie, and Oliver that we're prepared to make donations to their favorite charities. Tony Blauer has a ton of exorbitantly-priced videos for sale. Undercutting him is a sure way to corner the market.

I'll be waiting.
