I'm more or less a fan of ASP. I think he does a really good job of narration, and video editing. And while I think he's probably knowledgeable about a broad spectrum of topics, I always feel like there's something missing. To me, it seems like rather than a objective discussion of tactics, John C seems more or less to come off as a opinionated movie critic. Attitude, Skills, Plan... I'm aware that he also posts things on Asp-extra, but concerning his main channel, i began watching to learn things. His videos are entertaining, but I'm not seeing skills...or plans... or any kind of breakdown other then him talking about things you can watch as they happen on video. I believe from watching his videos that regardless of who is right or wrong, surprise, speed, and violence of action are the main deciding factors on winning a fight or not winning it. What i don't see from a viewer standpoint is much of a discussion when it comes to why one person wins and one doesn't. Another for instance is physical fitness is a big factor for how violent you can be, it is important, and it isn't covered. Emotional and spiritual fitness is, but it seems like allot of people carry a firearm as a substitute for lack of physical preparation and i think that is a poor "plan". you have a vp9 and that is really cool, but for less money you can get a glock and a gym membership... I like his videos, i think he's a sharp businessman, but nothing makes me want to go find John and take a self defense class. Am I a jerk?
