I truly enjoyed the camp. I appreciate Vladimir, staff and all the training partners.Two important things.
First, the unique training environment conditions – daytime, midnight, on the grass, forest and water, with
knives, sticks and clothes were all very powerful to develop sensitivity and diverse skills. Second, a wonderful
opportunity to train with people from many countries. It was so interesting. We usually train in our own countries
and tend to see Systema from one side. The camp showed numerous aspects of Systema.
Kaneta Shun, Ehime, Japan
If someone can not strike you properly and enough, it shows the skill and level of the person is low in the point of physical and psychological level. Someone trained enough can strike you effectively and properly. People who don’t understand training is not violence are low skilled martial artist in the point of psychology.
At systema training, we never discriminate people by their skill.
“The body has to be free of tension, filled with endurance, flexibility, effortless movement and explosive potential.
The spirit or psychological state has to be calm, free of anger, irritation, fear, self-pity, delusion and pride.
The combat skill includes movements that are powerful and precise, instant and economical, spontaneous, subtle and diverse, the signature of a true professional.”(What is Systema? http://www.russianmartialart.com/whatis.php)
