    Oh his videos get much better than Taoism.

    Here's a whole video where he challenged the concept of light "traveling" via a strange thought experiment involving his uncle visiting the Moon and explosions.

    He goes on for a good 11m (this is just part 1) ignoring the warping of time due to gravity and a lot of other physics, and making a lot of weird assertions that would make basic fiber optic cable seem impossible...but...yeah.

    Photons travel. Photons can be slowed down. Photons have (very recently) actually been stopped and trapped in a crystal matrix by German physicists, and then let go again to fly away.

    Rob is apparently good with computers, bad at thought experiments. Like his Tai Chi, I don't think he gets a lot of proper feedback.

    Don't watch this video if you can avoid it. If you do, I warned you.

    My bad, he mentioned meeting a challenger in San Diego, but now that I re-read it, it mentions him traveling.

    Given that he's willing to travel, I wonder if there is a Bully in the San Diego area that is a competent grappler?



    Edit: I must admit, he is clearly a dan level in Derp Face.

    The backdrop in his outdoor videos doesn't really look like anywhere around Kingston to me, but if that's really where he is I would happily tag along on one of the weekends I'm up there.

    That pic/Fb page is of a second guy with the same name, living in San Diego.

    Why do these videos always purport to show how to defeat a certain style then use a victim that knows absolutely nothing about that particular style?

    What amuses me the most about this video is that he thinks BJJ practitioners only know how to move forward in a straight line.

    Well, how are you going to know when or which way to turn when you're staring at your feet in preparation for the gentle hug required to affect a takedown?

    See, what I find laughable is that his only demo partner is his son, upon whom he has about a 14" and 50lb weight advantage, whom he has taken great pains to not instruct in the techniques he's ostensibly defending against, and who is very clearly going to great effort to not launch a meaningful attack in the first place.
