I've always shot thumbs forward because "that's what you're supposed to do." Now I'm curious about trying these other thumb positions.
Never particularly cared for him just because of his lack of real world experience. He is a wealth of technical and range knowledge along with legality and use of force but much like Chris Costa (Coast Guard) I don't put a ton of faith in instructors on deadly force who've never fought for their life or had rounds slung at them? Just my humble opinion

I respect Mas and his opinion but....... I really do believe there is not a one size fits all when it comes to grip. For instance I carry and shoot J frames quite a bit and using the method Mas demonstrated leads to my trigger finger hitting my support thumb. I modified my grip so that my support thumb rests on the knuckle of my firing hand thumb.
I say give them a shot but just remember what works for Mas may not work for you and vise versa.
Thumbs low works best for me. And it mitigates slide and hammer bite with polymers and Hi Powers.
I don’t trust a guy who gets his nails manicured...check out the video. I have office hands, but his are beyond that .
Guys in SWPL including Leo's and Gunsite guys called him "Assad the boob".
I've always used a low thumb because it gets your hands out of the controls of any gun and it tends to act as more of a vice.
