wtf is up with his astronaut space suit gi kimono and moon boots with his bloused trousers?
i have NEVER seen anybody else wear that kind of uniform. i don't understand. it's like someone wet farted in my eyeballs.
I know that things like ipponken, heiken, keiko, koken are in karate; but I was thinking moreso about organizing them into separate animal fighting methods. But maybe that's in karate too.

Garrotting someone is only learnt when you hit 14th dan.
Regardless of where the animal techniques came from, there's several lessons Dux hasn't figured out yet.

Don't have the necessary skills to critique them, so I won't even try. Seems from the second vid that they don't always train against fully-compliant partners though.
EDIT: Might as well post a couple more from the same source as the second.

In that second vid, check out the guard the smaller fighter takes at 1:31 - he was using it earlier too, but from behind I wasn't sure how far back he was holding his right hand.
If you need a translation of the opening paragraphs, I got you covered:

The word “ninja” is the on’yomi type** of kanji (Japanese symbols, sorry, I can’t translate those) utilized in the original term employed in the Japanese language “shinobi-no-mono”, which was utilized to be referred to ninjutsu practitioners*** as war tactic and not as martial art, where “nin” means "to be slipped away" and jutsu means "art" or "dexterity", for which together means "art to be slipped away" or "art of stealth."
* Except they weren't a military organization.
** ”of writing” does not need to be translated, as it is understood. Kanji is a writing system, therefore it would be redundant to say “the type of Kanji writing” in English.
*** While it is still an acceptable term to use, “practitioner” is typically only used for medical assistants/doctors/etc. in Spanish. I find it odd that the translator wouldn’t just say “fighters”, but what the **** do I know?
As for the video itself, I almost threw up when I saw the "grappling". I'm by all means a jiu jitsu white belt, and even I know better than to turn your back on your opponent when trying to escape side control.
