honestly, i don't care about geary's video, to a degree. to throw it out there for you guys, and with all due respect to professor geary, the videos are not what I expected. before i go any further, let me say that when the rest of the video is posted, i don't care if it's bad or good, to a degree. i'm not leaving the school because of it. like i said before, i attend shihan steiner's school and i love it. steiner has a wealth of knowledge. i thought that speed was lacking. and there are other little things i noticed, but i noticed things with all the other videos.....now for the sake of a fair argument. since none of us have discussed with geary how he likes to perform his techniques. we don't know if he likes to have lots of speed or is he likes a calmer flow to the technique. so to judge if the whole thing is crap, none of us can really do that. we can say something like: i would have done this differently, etc. if someone does not perform a technique how "everyone else" thinks it should be done, then that doesn't mean that the person doesn't know the technique. knowing the technique is about having the knowledge and understanding it and the theories of it. and being a good instructor is to be able to pass it on. based on what i have seen from attending steiner's school, it appears that geary is very knowledgable and a good teacher. i've also received some instruction during class from geary (twice). and he knew what he was talking about. so basically, i'm saying that from what i've seen, he is definately not a fraud. about caring about the video....i wanted to see the video just like everybody else did. so far the video has not helped him, as far as this forum goes. is that clear enough for you guys?
