Not very good production in this series sometimes he speaks english other times he is narrated over. Im not really sure what to think on these techniques, He looks good doing them and the are quite effective looking but it is against a willing partner not an attacker hopped up on adrenaline or some drug. The moves he shows can be complicated and would take alot of practicing to be confident enough to use a gainst a knife wielding attacker. But some of the ideas and basice seem solid enough. My real problem with this kind of material is lack of documented proof that this works not just some guys word.
Nope, much like the gun disarms video this one also uses techniques that will probably backfire in reality. Again, it is fun to watch....but not realistic in the slightest.
Watching this guy is amazing.He is part salsa dancer and part slippery oilly fish.I realize you may not understand what I just wrote until you get this video and see for yourself.In my opion,I do not need another intructor for a long while.This guy's techniques are the complete package.Valdimar moves with such economy of movement and effort,it is perfect for the defence style for even the most lazy people or for the timid person that wants to build their speed and confidance
