    Agree! One less step is always better.

    It's OK to move 3 steps when you are in your opponent's side door,. It's risky to move 3 steps while you are in your opponent's front door.

    Here are 2 moves that only take 1 step to take your opponent down. Will it be better to spend your training time to train those moves instead?

    This floating hand technique in your clip looks almost identical to what I was taught years ago.

    Honestly, I'm not going to be training any of these moves because I'm not working on throws and takedowns right now.
