comment Does Krav Maga have any roots of Aikido?
Then perhaps narrow your question down to a select part of the video, list them out, name the common moves, give some description of what you're asking. We've gone through this in another question, and I've explained my reasoning extensively in a meta post (see also the comments and the chat links). If anything, we can request YouTube embedding if it would benefit the community here, but the video by itself shouldn't be the question.

comment history of Jujitsu?
I think a better question is why doesn't a single definitive historical resource exist. Your question leans too much on polling for various answers which doesn't fit the Q&A model of Stack Exchange.

comment how to perform a reverse punch?
That's interesting. Sounds like it's just a case of semantics here where both meanings are valid.

Can you expand on the particular techniques rather than linking to a video? It would help to have that descriptive text here in case that video is ever removed or if people can't access YouTube (and for whatever other reasons).

Will there be other people on the panel? Have you consulted with them about it?
