Well, I couldn't say it any better than my friend Todd Bishop in his comment on the youtube video:
Todd Bishop
A very strange cat. Obviously knowledgeable about an extremely narrow, mostly historical area of percussion, and obviously totally clueless on anything outside of that. Players vastly more accomplished than this guy recognize the value of Moeller-associated techniques, and he's discrediting himself as any kind of authority by declaring them all to be "mediocre."
And yes, Ken Mazur has a reputation as a rather "complicated" character.

When I was taught the stroke it was made clear the motion is exaggerated in the learning phase and becomes an implied movement in execution. It's been forever, but I recall a focus on fragmented rolls (6 stroke especially) with a slight elbow flap on the bookended singles. It was just another thing you tried to find a use for, like the Spivak grip, when immersed in technique.
