Is this a BPST?

Would you guys consider this an example of a Bullet proof short turn?

The guy has mega skills. His dolphin turns are wicked strong. Didn't watch the full video but I am sure he slays bumps.

Love the easily visible 'O' frame in the bump video...

Guys has skills. I've been subscribed to the channel on YouTube for a few years I think.

The two skiers I primarily watch is Harald and this guy (Chang Keun Kim), and from what I can tell, most of what the Korean does reconciles with PMTS; it was nice to have that confirmed! I might be off-base here but it seems to me that the Korean's edge-locked carving leaves something to be desired, what do you guys think?

Not sure about his training methods?
I used to teach these wedge zig-zag turns 30 years ago on dry slopes in the UK
Excellent backing track though

I've seen this video before. A lot of the same exercises as Hisaya Sato's stuff. Obviously their teaching system is decades behind PMTS and offers no clear path to reproducing the movements that they demonstrate (but probably still better than PSIA+CSIA).

Does this blog post by Harald also apply to Changs skiing?

I'm not just into carving, you have to have all mountain skills and a bullet proof short turn. Sometimes I see too much flat ski hard edge sets in these skiers. Reilly for example is versatile, I helped him with that for his competitions, he's not just and edge lock skier. He was also, just 2 years ago, big toe dominant and as you can see now, he's really refined.

Bullet Proof short Turn off piste and on piste ungroomed. 14 meter skis, 170cm, 68 underfoot. Not slalom skis.

Interesting when you what the last korean ski video, there is a 'huge' change in his technique when he gets to the parallel skiing demo...His TTS technique suddenly changes/ disappears..he is a great skier, but his progression of exercises will not lead you ski like him..

I have been a big fan of korean skiing, but recently, it appears, their training methods have regressed as far away from PMTS as possible..

Reilly, on the other hand, has morphed into HH...Berger, HH, Reilly...bet you would't be able to spot the difference if they all used identicle equipment/ clothing...maybe their pole use might give it away....
