I think it looked good too! I concur with your thought on the flowing vs. pausing. I admire the flow; I am not super good at that, but I also know what you mean about showing technique. I do not know which is better. I also saw the overhead strike thing, and the technique on the sides does seem to be more precise on your right side. I think when you do the side sequence with your left hand, when you pull in before stabbing, your palm doesn’t turn all the way in (making the sai vertical) before turning up for the stab. Also, I think on a couple of your side strikes to the back your sai may not have turned completely vertical at the end of the strike.
