so should he be teaching these techniques then?

DTT wouldn't put up with groundwork like that in the crippleshed, that's for sure.

This guy probably learned a bit of ground fighting and then added it to the list of dozens of styles that he claims to have studied.
His other videos are equally baffling. Some particularly unflowing nunchuk work, lifted straight from Enter The Dragon, some high level kicking that looks like a remnant from some earlier karate training (I'd like to see if his students can do any of that) and bizarrely, for a guy that seems to be intent on mashing together a bunch of disparate styles into something modern, the odd quirk of bowing at every bit of equipment he's using like he's doing something traditional rather than, you know, making it up on the spot.
Also his get-tough-quick Streetfighting site seems a bit tawdry compared to his other site.

Free hugs with every lesson though.
Yo kid, your right hand would be better employed by defending yourself rather than palm down on the floor.
My favorite part was when he abandoned his shitty armbar and got the tapout with a wristlock. I'm guessing that's his "go to".
