    I noticed that TRS Direct is offering tapes with another Russian Martial artist, a former cop named Yelena Pawela. Has anyone seen these tapes and can anyone comment on them?

    This is from TRS: "Over on the other side of the planet in Russia, they have a whole culture of fighting history that is only know being revealed to the west. Vladimir Vasiliev introduced Systema and the rage has continued for over 4 years now.
    Enter Yelena Pawela who's roots run back to the former Soviet Counter-intelligence services and herself a Russian police officer and K9 trainer and you'll discover one of the toughest and most talented individuals for practical street survival you've ever run across.
    It would be a HUGE MISTAKE to pass on this cause Yelena is a woman. She quickly earned our respect at TRS and we promise that you'll learn some really cool stuff from this amazingly tough and respected instructor."

    TRS Direct doesn't say where she trained. Does anyone know if she is affiliated with ROSS or Kadochnikov or maybe this is an entirely new style.

    I saw her in Columbus Ohio last weekend and she did a small (5-8 minute) demostration. The announcer said that she was from the Soviet SWAT team in Moscow.

    The Demostration was with a large German Shepherd Dog. The dog did some attacking and the basic ..SIT ...STAY....EAT BAD GUY


    She did only about 1-2 minutes of hand-to-hand work and most of that was the basic DT stuff that Police learn. At one point the "bad guy" ran at her with a stick from across the stage. She pulled a gun and shot him (it was a cap gun).

    Thanks
