And you did not come up with this before. Why? Why did you first pick on "through the ball" and now claim to be disgusted with "across the ball" also? Because I called you out, that is why. If you had been truly neutral, you would have adopted your superior tone much before.
Not sure why my motivations are relevant, but, no I don't have a dog in the MTM fight. I don't think Oscar is a savior and don't think he's a total fraud either, overstated though many of his claims seem. Bottom line is he's one of many teachers trying to make a buck who probably have some potentially useful things to say.
So, no agenda. I just popped into this thread because I was curious about why it hadn't yet been deleted, and noticed that you were (IMO) mischaracterizing and exaggerating the significance of Filip Peliwo's comments on his technique.
