I agree with tangopeer below. 'Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder'. The  
video is not beautiful but certainly educational. Abusive?? I really don't see  
it.  Metin  has an aggressive personality and it pervades his teaching  
style. If you want a soft fuzzy type of teacher, don't attend his workshops. It  
would be great to ask the opinion of the woman in the video. I'm sure somebody  
recognizes her or actually attended the workshop.
The demonstration on the video in a workshop environment is appropriate; in a 
 milonga ridiculous. I would describe what I saw on the video as 
'aggressively  playful.' To those folks who deplore the word aggression I understand all 
the  negative commentaries. I hope you will not respond with an 'aggressive 
attack'  on my opinion! I have feelings as well and even Metin possesses the 
same! Smile  and Relaxxxxxxxxx. It's not all that serious! Si o  No?

Look for the positive and you will learn to see the
Many of us, out here, learn from watching new dancers,
bad dancers and  dancers that don't dance like us.  
I see contribution.
I see no abuse.
You see?
