Poor physical condition has plenty to do with it. If you can’t take a little ribbing, you shouldn’t post videos. I’m joking. Is this martial arts talk or snowflake story time?
Well, now I know your attitude toward disagreement. Childish.

You might want to take another look at the site banner. A key word is "friendly" and you'll find that in the TOS here as well.
Just be nice. Doesn't seem that much to ask...

I'd have some technical critiques of the form demonstrated in the video, if anyone asked. (No one has, so I'll keep those to myself for now.) However I would caution against judging a martial artist based just on their weight.

...certainly seems to be more flabby and overweight than the gentleman in the video you were commenting on. It didn't keep him from having a successful career at the highest levels of MMA, with wins over some of the best fighters in the world. I'd venture to say that he could teach some useful things to just about anybody on this forum.

He certainly can rock and roll. Isn't he a black b belt in BJJ as well?

Again, I am sincerely sorry for my comment. I regret ever posting it. I apologize to the gentleman in the video, and any other person who was offended. It was a poor attempt at a joke, nothing more.

Solution: use the elbow. More devastating and less injury risk but closer range required.

The literal embodiment of Shaolin.

Have you seen him lately? The training has actually reversed his aging process.

This picture is fake but worth it.
