Well, am pretty sure nobody else respects me either. That is OK I don't need it, I just need to keep getting better like I am.
I just like making things more simple, to me the move simplifies things. At least with what I would have to think about. For him, who knows, maybe it is actually a less natural move and he has to think about more feels. I can see it taking a bit for him to start really grooving in the swing as well.
Yea, ideally less motion is better. The old adage "Keep it Simple Stupid" comes to mind. I agree with you, but I find certain swings fun to watch, I liked his old one.
