Default TI method and ocean walker technique

Good evening everyone! Can anyone please tell me the difference between TI method and ocean walker technique? I just saw ocean walker's "swim technique" on youtube and im thinking to myself its very similar to TI.

I also wonder if this ocean walker learned TI before and just used all the TI materials and make it sound that he came up with this "unique technique" when its originally from TI...

Any input will be much appreciated!

Here is the youtube footage of Ocean Walker and his stroke. It is uncannily similar to the TI stroke and although it is possible that he arrived at it independently without ever seeing any TI footage, I would regard this as very unlikely.;

However he is clearly a very skilled swimmer.

I suppose one can't patent a stroke style.

Well his two goggles are out of the water, maybe that's a difference :-) :-)

The guy has a very solid stroke. The relaxation in the recovery is a bit showy overdone in my eyes, but thats really nitpicking.
Looks like he read the TI books and he felt like starting his own business.

Adam is a good friend of TI and I believe took a workshop from Coach Tracey Baumann in UK sometime back when experiencing shoulder and bicep problems, before the Ocean Seven.

The video is a promotional video so it's really hard to get a feel for where his stroke might differ from TI. With that said, pretty much any successful swimmer is going to have to develop stability, efficiency and be streamlined. There will be some similarities no matter how far different the core philosophies might be.

My understanding is that he worked closely with a TI coach for some time in the UK.
