Great videos, though!
I assume you're talking about the free freestyle video series on my site? Yeah the lack of full screening in that video player bugs me too and I'm looking at changing the player around over the next couple weeks though so that should be fixed soon hopefully.

speedjason very interesting perspective of teaching how to link turns.

I've heard they've moved to more emphasis on hip/knees/angle rotation since I last did CASI. It's not so much that that've stopped upper body rotation teaching first, but rather refined the teaching to focus more on how lower body rotation affects the turn. There's still nothing wrong with starting the turn with your upper body, and there are still a lot of level 4 CASI instructors that teach using upper body first. Assuming you're familiar with CASI, you'll notice this entire tutorial focuses on the quick ride system of teaching.

Honestly it's not a big deal either way, at the end of the day the goal is to get the student turning with their whole body, with emphasis on their hips knees ankles for dynamic turning and where they start the turn isn't as important as how they execute the rest of the turn, especially as they move to freestyle later where upper body rotation reigns as the main method of rotation.

Just different ways to achieve a similar goal really.
