Maybe he has a reason. Id be interested in what that reason is though. What he is teaching was valid in 1982. In 1983 they allowed the use of hands in highschool and the NCAA. Since then most all pass blocking has included hands. I'm at jr high and freshmen level. We pass 10 to 20 x a game.  We don't spend a ton of time pass blocking. Most of the technique time is with the tackles kick slide and punch. That is mostly because when we go spread series teams will try a wide rush and blitz the c gap.

Would surprise anybody if I suggested, and I doubt this likely, that some teach the feet long before the hands. And then you have the ninja drill. In the Ninja the pass blocker is blind folded and expected to use his hands to instinctively. Just saying that it might not be what people think. But even I seriously doubt that.

IMO, 90% of pass pro technique revolves around the feet.

I think the low hands really helps with that.  It helps put the focus on the feet rather than on the hands and upper body.

You beat the rusher with your feet.  They get your body in position and give you good balance.

The hands are just there to control the rusher.  Grabbing a guy with your hands doesn't do jack if your feet are slow or out of position.
