I've played with Kazuo at Pro Worlds. Solid player grinds it out with few mistakes where he has to scramble. He hasn't yet been able to win in his MP60 division here against the likes of Greenwell, Sias and Beers despite sometimes being the highest rated player.

A few of those holes in the clip, it looked like a tree or bush must have been a nebulous mando where we couldn't identify what comprised making or missing the mando.

I don't think it's more efficient than x-step, but is effective.

PDGA shows his first grandmasters result in 1999. So he was at least 68 or 69 when he first broke 1000-rated in 2018.
Grandmaster age was 45 to 55 in '99, so he may be a few years younger than your estimate but still darn impressive.

I will say that Uli doesn't have this form anymore, he has a traditional x-step.
