These are concepts that are already integrated in systems like what you'll find in Magpul Dynamics videos and stuff from other schools/instructors. And as stated in the text they may not be intuitive or easy techniques, but they pay off once you master them.

That was exactly my point. The part with handling the weapon with one hand was just a direct example. Everyone is so quick to make assumptions. I just wanted to discuss the topic as a whole. I also think relating to already integrated concepts is also missing the point. It's about looking at things from a different perspective. But I apologize for fueling the internet hate machine. I'll just reframe from doing so in the future.
