    Saw this video on YouTube (A Russian music video about the VDV) and I noticed that the soldiers were doing martial arts training towards the end. I'm not sure if it's some sort of kata or whatnot, I wonder what RMA if any the Russians are practicing (Martial Arts side starts at the 2 minute mark):



    If nothing else, it's a cool music video.

    It could be Karate or Taegwondo, both of which are really popular in Russia.

    I imagined as much. We had a TKD instructor I knew of years ago, trained alongside Master Song of Daytona Beach,FL who'd taught in Russia briefly a few years after Glastnost.

    Its basic Shotokan derived Karate (which Tang Soo Do and Tae Kwon Do are part of).

    It has nothing to do with Russian Martial arts.

    That's correct, they're not displyaing a traditional Russian art.
