    We would have promoted the dummy to purple but he stopped coming to class regularly after he got his blue. Same old story....

    Anyway, the guy showing the drills and in the competition hi-lites (doing berimbolos) at the end of the video is Kyle Youngman. He's the guy who makes the dummies.

    i think It would have been taken more seriously if you werent wearing jeans and a Tshirt and in your basement. but still that Dummy looks like it would be cool to have.

    the music is fitting.

    This did seem like a strange video but entertaining at the least. The only way to defeat the Berimbolo is WITH the Berimbolo!

    Super creepy! But...
    I figured out a LOT of stuff about the Kimura grip while borrowing a dummy from one of my students. Those things can be incredibly helpful if you can get over the weird feeling. You can get a lot of drilling done when you don't have to ask permission first.
