Alright, I tried to take some advice from different people and I made a couple new videos. In the videos I explained how all the techniques were done, I think someone asked for me to do that. Now, I tried to fix some mistakes, but I'm sure there are still plenty of errors, hopefully with more practice I can improve, like I said, I've only been at it for 4 years, and I'm no where near a black belt. I stuttered alot in explanations, honestly this was my first time ever having to explain how to do a technique, so I'm sorry if its a bad explanation, not only was I unsure what to say, but a little nervous that hundreds of people can see these videos online. Anyways, here we go....

Shirt Grab

Choke

Head Lock

Wrist Lock

Eric,

I wish more young (and older) people had this attitude. It is the sign of maturity.

Oh, and I liked the videos too, but I have to ask; does your brother get paid for this abuse?

You sure do like elbows and knees!

All of em looked good, explanations were good too, I didn't see a problem with what you said.

I know the wrist lock one and the head lock one, LOVE the headlock manuver with the nose, it's my favorite move to do to people!

I do some variations though: (not that what you are doing is wrong, just different)
I hold the wrist lock and take him to the ground instead of bashing the crap out of em immediately, sifu described that motion like pushing a broom, that way you don't loose the correct bend in the wrist or arm, once he's on the ground I feel a bit safer, cause I don't have to worry about being kicked or anything else if he's face down in a wrist lock.
Plus I know a few moves from that position that are just TORTURE, I can't stand having em put on me, but it's great when the opponent screams for mercy!

And on the head lock nose escape, I hit to the ribs, personally I think it's a softer and much more painful target, plus it's less distance to the target than the sternum, but that's just a personal fav.

Keep up the good work and keep em coming!

good videos, don't take what I said the wrong way about the sound effects. What I meant was that (and this is only how I was taught, by all means do what you will) to not make the little "dishh" type sounds whenever you do something. I was just taught no noise unless you are making a kiai. Which it seems like you were doing anyway.

I like the headlock pushing the nose, I have not heard of that.
The wrist grab, I think I would prefer to go outside circle instead of inside. I think you did inside. I like outside because it is a nice arm bar setup.

The choke hold was cool, but one Q. If someone plans on putting both hands on your neck, why not pummel them with your four free limbs. Unless your on the ground which is a different story.

Good vids, though. It looks really cramped in there, I thought you were going to move outside?

Eric, good effort mate. Your explanations were clear and concise (didn't even notice the stuttering really!). I speak from experience that you gonna get a lot of people nit picking at everything, but don't take it to heart and be proud of yourself for having the gutts to put your stuff on show!

Your stuff was pretty much technically sound too....there's a few things you could do to enhance what you were doing, but its impossible to cater for everyones taste and methodologies. If your interested in these, PM and I'll go through a few with you, rather that look like I'm having a go!

Good work though made, and don't take too much of what the neysayers say to heart. Just take and use it all as constructive feedback!

Oh, its a WONDERFUL move, get someone to do it to you, or just push up on the bridge under your nose.
Only downfall is if your opponent has a cold....

Very good, you and your brother have great attitudes, keep it up and some day I'll see you guys in the movies!

Curious, do you have a Sensei that you train under or are you self tought?

I have someone that I train under, he's a 4th Dan in Tkd/Hapkido. Good person to learn how to fight from. However I guess you could say when it comes to the "art" part, and the philoshopy and spiritual side, then I am self taught lol. If you would like I can email them to you oldman, I'd greatly value your opinion as well.
