i ran into a strange thing on another forum. after i reccomended JD’s teachings to someone, this guy went into a shrill personal attack on Davies, he wrapped up the rant by writing in essence that Davies knew nothing, and i should check out a certain thread on that forum, and one on the charlie francis site, which proved his point.
well i went to that thread and found only a general polemic against fitness “gurus.” i followed the link to another thread on the charlie francis site, but found the same thing and NO ACTUAL WORDS CRITICIZING JD, or even mentioning him.
i told the guy there may be a day in the future when JD’s advice fails me, but i kind of doubt it.
then the guy admitted that Davies was an excellent teacher, but “only” for strength, power, speed and work capacity!
at that point i was laughing out loud, and wondering WHAT ELSE Davies was supposed to be teaching.
up until today, when i read the ‘trial’ article, that was the only thing i heard negative about JD.
all i can say is some people are really out there. they read what seems like very straight forward stuff to most of us, and they think they are reading a secret message from the mushroom kingdom or something.
i think both cursory or in-depth examination of facts, shows that JD is an excellent coach. i have seen no evidence to the contrary.
