Steve here. I told Rob Biernacki that we could record an episode on gripfighting and kuzushi to coincide with the release of his new instructional on the same topic. This was a big mistake.
Rob could not get his mic working - which, of course, he blamed on our recording software. I later learned that he was recording from HIS MOM'S HOUSE, where I assume he was connecting via a 28 baud modem. I quickly gave up on this endeavor, so Rob enlisted the help of his cabin boy Rory van Vliet to provide the required tech support. This disasterpiece is the result.
In this "episode," Rob and Rory introduce gripfighting and kuzushi, explain why they're important, and do a frankly awful job of trying to sell you on this new instructional. After suffering through this episode I am even less motivated than before to watch this instructional, and I got it for free!
Rob was supposed to include a discount code, but he forgot, so we gave up on that. Jesus Christ.
