I know, right. That's why I said it blows my mind. But more specifically, it goes against the grain of what TI teaches. But, whether it's there in the video or not, no one can deny the fact that Shinji himself says he does it consciously. Moreover, he actually teaches this twisting motion to his more advanced students. The TI-norm "roll like a log" is reserved for beginners, which is understandable.
I hope Shinji replies again and explains in more detail what he meant.
