  1. A Gray Cook Show! I’ve been waiting for this for a few years, great first episode. “Try the exercise before you comment on it or attempt to teach it” is great advice, and I’ll work on those getup positional drills.

  2. Ok, this is just about the most amazing thing ever! Just made my day!

  3. AWESOME, just got Kalos Sthenos for Christmas – Hopefully we will have Gray Cook TV soon!!!
