    Soon I will be writing reviews of the Systema Videos I have seen and where you can buy them. Hopefully this will let you know what videos contain what so you can decide if you feel like buying one.

    I watched a few of Mr. Vasilev's videos with Mr. Hartman last night (ground defense and knife defense). Neat stuff--I enjoyed seeing how he moves.

    The videos are a good fore runner. It's too bad you never got to see him in person. It's just not the same.

    I blame the Toronto public transit system. But yeah, I really wanted to get up there.

    Can anyone recommend one or two of the tapes from www.russianmartialart.com as a good introduction to Systema??

    I really wanna check systema out, but i'm kinda stuck on the wrong side of the planet (for now). Any advice on a good video intro to systema concepts and techniques would be great.

    Cheers

    Baoquan.

    There is a 2 pack video that outlines a good portion of the system's concepts and how to apply them in a given situation. Then there is a second 2 pack and after that there is a 2 set series on groundfighting. Those are good to start with.

    Actually, my girlfriend and I are planning to spend a year or so in either Italy (work permits permitting) or Canada. If its Canada, i'll definately come see him in person.:D
