comment What are the most effective exercises (hojo undō or otherwise) for martial arts?
...and the sentences immediately after the one you quoted describe why I think so. I don't mind using nigiri game jars; but they shouldn't be valued higher than modern grip training methods unless the goal is historical reenactment rather than functional martial arts.

Stop worrying about "revoking" his "license"; just see if you can track down his teacher and tell that person what happened.

THelper is right; the issue is with presupposing that traditional methods are more effective at sport-specific training than newer methods. (Furthermore, many if not most martial artists are also in need of general strength & conditioning prior to sport-specific S&C, and do not understand the difference.)

comment Can Forms (Kata/Poomsae/etc.) or Techniques (Waza) be practiced on the ground?
@stslavik About "going back"--that's why I recommended getting substantial experience before playing with kata-on-the-back. In my experience most people advocating "do kata from your back" can't grapple and are looking for ways to avoid the hard work of learning to grapple, or feigning expertise in an art they're unfamiliar with by drawing weak parallels. I'm not saying that's the case with you, but I think it's important to keep in mind when giving advice.
