  • yea Jeremy i heard it but it bears thinking about because much of what we expect a situation to be is not what it is in real life. The only way to actually learn how to fight is to actually fight was more the point By situational awareness what i mean is being aware of the positioning of yourself and your opponent and where the vulnerability lies . This is why when you watch a fight you always say damn why didnt he hit that guy or why did he not block that punch . Even knowing every move you possibly could does not help with out that awareness . As to weapons , they work really well , And it seems to me that most styles seem to use the same cookie cutter attack style and approach. For instance what if an attacker with a knife attacks open hand first knife second instead of an over handed stab ? Does the requisite movement come naturally to the combatant enough that he can do it with enough speed for it to be effective? There in lies another question if everyone is different and different movements are more natural to different people then how can 1 style fit all ? What is practical becomes an individual question.It seems that every 5th person you meet today has some kind of martial arts training in america , that being said if it were possible to disarm every armed gunman or knife wielding lunatic with moves alone the crime rate would be non existent.

  •  @ Jeremy Crow -  Cool. Sounds like a good move on your part.

  • @Anatoly Yes, the classes I would be attending are at the Thornhill, Ontario club run by Vasiliev. This is the northern edge of Toronto, which is where I currently live. So it works out really well. Drop in classes are $20 and I intend on starting off with a few drop ins first to get a feel for it, do a bit of practicing on my own. Then when my schedule frees up a bit starting in May I will try to get in for regular classes.

  • @ Jeremy Crow. Interesting to hear you're starting Systema training, Jeremy. Is it with Vasiliev?

  • Hey Bob, the points you bring up in your comments are actually covered in the presentation:

    "6. Weapons Training: proficiency in the use and disarming of modern weapons such as firearms, knives, batons, chains, etc"

    This is one of the 9 vital components to a complete combat system and the first weapon class mentioned is firearms. As stated above, the points are not written in order of importance. Each of the 9 points is important and if your fighting school or martial arts club doesn't cover some of the points then you will need to bridge the gap some other way. No fighting system or martial arts school that I am aware of covers all 9 components. Again, this is all stated in the presentation if you take the time to listen to it.

    "1. Hand to Hand Combat: proficiency in all three threat zones of kicking/punching, clinch/takedown, and grappling/submission"

    In the section where he discusses these three threat zones, he explicitly states that takedown, grappling and submission and any form of groundwork is to be avoided if possible, especially when there are other people in the room who could just walk over and kick you in the head. However the reality is that a huge percentage of real fights that go beyond just one or two punches will eventually end up on the ground at some point. It's important to know how to fight from this position, but also even more important to get off the ground as soon as possible.

  • Actually i do alot of martial arts but the realty is there is no way to train for a fight like an actual fight. No matter what movements you practice they will do no good if you do not have the situational awareness .And this whole go to the ground thing only works if there arent 8 people there to stomp on you when you hit the floor .You could train your whole life and get your ass kicked in by someone with no formal training who has actually been fighting his whole life rather easily.To say 1 form is better than another doesnt work because it comes down to the individual.

  • It is always good to know how to fight with the body, someone can break you, there will always be opportunity to have loaded weapons and bullets ready....

  • Guns . Ever see someone box a bullet ? Who needs a 1 inch punch when you can have a .45 slug.

  • Super cool Jermey

  • Antonly, I definitely think Systema is probably one of the best fighting systems to use as a foundation. I wouldn't say it cover all the categories but it comes closer than any other fighting system or martial art that I've researched. I am going to be starting Systema training within the next couple months.
