The modern way is to start rotating the feet then the hips the hips stretch the torso which snaps the shoulders and arms.
The way he describes it the back and chest turn the shoulders which turn the hips which turns the feet, so you get strong hip power his way because they follow so closely behind the shoulders but its less powerful than starting from the feet.
