“The knife concentrates all of martial arts into a single high-definition focus. First, because of the knife’s absolute lethality. Second, the deceptive attributes of this weapon: its small size, light weight, and almost invisible nature.”
“It’s easier to imagine oneself the victim of a sneaky knife attack than to imagine using a knife oneself to fight off an attack.” In Systema, both scenarios serve a profound training purpose.
Each seminar day will follow the format of the book and explore the concepts and drills of:
- Knife in Your Hand
- At Knife Point
- Signs of Danger
This training will help you develop intuition, awareness, swift dexterity, smooth evasions and invincible freedom of movement.
You will practice to disarm a blade at any stage of attack and to sense the threat long before your life is on the line.
Cut through your fear and gain the edge of mastery.
- Striking and kicking technique
- Strikes and kicks on the move
- Work with multiple opponents
- Distance, precision and impact
- Turning your own and opponent's tension into power
There is an underlying structure of how to grasp Systema. Vladimir will share this during this seminar.
The key principle of the Russian Systema is non-destruction. The goal is to make sure that your training and your attitudes do no damage to the body or the psyche of you or your partners. Systema is designed to create, build and strengthen your body, your psyche, your family and your community.
Optimize the reserves of your body and psyche to prevail over any challenge.
