What the Experts say about Russian Martial Art

Never have I been exposed to a more complete system of defense than that of Russian Martial Art, operated by Mr. Vasiliev.

In the 25 years of martial arts, I have not seen and doubt that I will ever see this level of mastery! I wish I could scream across the whole country and tell everyone that they should open their eyes to this new art.

Mr. Vasiliev's techniques and inventive methods of overcoming every conceivable attack are beyond belief. Once you understand how he does it, you can too...you would be able to take on everyone you know, everyone they know, and those you haven't met in a dark alley one night. If they ever come up with a Hall of Fame for this, they would make Mr. Vasiliev a member and then seal the doors.

As an experienced martial artist, The System has provided me with a greater knowledge of body mechanics not used in other styles. The System's use of natural body movements allows me to incorporate and train officers to better equip themselves against a combative prisoner.

Definitely more practical than other tactics we learned. Amazing practical experience, VERY USEFUL. Excellent information, both useful and interesting. Awesome training should be incorporated into cadet / officer DT. Need more of stuff like this. Recommend this to the entire department. Excellent common sense training. I feel that the department needs to teach this, because it is a more dynamic technique, which relates to our job. I loved it and want more! Fantastic.

As indispensable as Systema is for martial art and combat, I find it most helpful in my daily life and medical work.
Vladimir teaches how to identify fears and tensions within a person and how to deal with them using simple but very profound techniques. This is very beneficial to myself but also I see these changes in my patients.
I observe during follow-up visits that patients are applying these breathing skills subconsciously. In my opinion, this is the best testament that methods taught and explained do work and that people's health improves. I can not account how many times I heard: "I've been seeing all those specialists and nobody told me about Systema breathwork. I did what you suggested and it actually worked! I feel so much better I didn't have to do more tests or take more medications!"
Thank you for all the great teachings over the years that have helped so many people!
