I wont insult you or your art with asking you to validate your system. I believe that it is a quality art. But one of your peers (who may be here as well) is defending systema on another forum at this time. In the debate these two clips were submitted by a detractor. http://web.mit.edu/mao/www/TRAD.asf http://web.mit.edu/mao/www/rus.mpg Can you please tell me what level you would rate the practitioners that are in these clips? In regards to what Id call the TKD fighter vs. the Systema fighter sparring match barring the final results - would you say that the Systema fighter fought and moved as is indicative of a Systema practitioner? If not, what did/didnt he do that would be called wrong or not Systema? Would you rate them as advanced, intermediate, beginner, etc, etc, etc ?
