I don't know if you get what I'm saying. This explains it TRIPLE BASE TECHNOLOGY complete video - YouTube
I don't know. If you're trying to tell him to learn on something hard then don't give him the bataleon as that takes away the teaching moment (hard takedowns from catching an edge
Plus with rocker and hybrid here to stay. he could probably ride reverse or hybrids for the rest of his life.
