    People do question a lot, not just your posts everybody's, it how people debate and sort the wheat from the chaff so don't take it personally. The other thing is, that while your English is excellent there are some misunderstandings due to it not being your first language. It's hard even among native speakers to put points across as coherently as if we were speaking face to face, then body language, inflections and tone of voice tell half the story so understanding is easier.

    Some of it is language. Some of it is being wedded to ideas. People make discussions personal when they are discuss with their feelings.

    I thank you for posting this video. It is a variation of an Aikido exercise we practise regularly from a double hand grip. Does it work against total resistance? Sure, it does. Can everyone do it? Not without a lot of practise. I introduced it to my Krav guys last night and will keep trainining it with them because it is so simple. Just a hint ... it will never work if you try to use strength.

    Curious does anyone practice a backfist as a block or to stop a jab?
