Where it's real hot..
The problem being, that you're listing styles *and* catagories.

Systema is a generic term, not a specific art, same with "Russian Martial Art"...they are both umbrellas to which many styles fall under.

RUSSIA:
- A. Belovs Wolf Combat Style
- Agni Kenpo
- Alexander Rudenkos Russian-Style
- Altai Kuresh (Altaian wrestling, from Altai Republic, Russia):

Only men above 18 are admitted to the competition. There are determined weight categories according to the age groups starting with the lightest one - 32 kg up to the heaviest - above 82 kg. Kuresh wrestlers used to wear their usual every-day clothes, i.e. soft leather footwear, trousers and a shirt. Clothes must be comfortable, and clothes seizures were not allowed. For the wrestlers' mutual convenience, they had to wrestle wearing sashes. Presently, in order to improve the wrestling class, a new sports uniform is recommended: a sash made of soft material 180-220 cm long and 50-70 cm wide, and special national clothes comfortable for wrestling. Absolute championship is held at the end of the competitions, where the sportsmen's weight is taken into consideration and the "Three Touch Points" rule is used

- Kolo

is a system of hand-to-hand combat that was created by great-great-grandfathers of the Slavonic and Russian people. It has been continuously developed and enriched throughout the centuries. These simple and direct movements laid the foundation from which the hand-to-hand techniques of KOLO evolved. In ancient times, Russia was engaged in constant warfare. The violent times motivated people to master the art of combat. Only the possession of certain fighting skills could enable a man to preserve his own life and defeat his enemy. Thus, rulers encouraged the development of the martial arts and kept an eye on every soldier so that he would continuously develop his fighting skills. Throughout its evolution, KOLO techniques have absorbed the elements of the ancient Slavonic philosophies. This theoretical foundation includes the teachings of the five elements, traditional medicine statutes regarding the life power canals, circulation and inner organ structure. It insists on the usage of all human body parts as weapons. These include the head, arms, elbows, knees, shoulders, thighs and feet.

- Sambo

Sambo wrestling is a composite style of jacket wrestling originally developed in Russia to serve as a common form of sport wrestling for the fifteen different republics of the former Soviet Union, each of which had one or more of its own distinct styles of folk wrestling, with widely varying rules. It was also used as a form of hand-to-hand combat preparation and training by Soviet military for use in unarmed combat. Sambo today is practiced in two flavors: Sport Sambo, the third style of international wrestling and a globally popular form of submission grappling; and Combat Sambo, a method of self-defense training. The term SAMBO is an acronym for the Russian phrase "SAMozashchita Bez Oruzhiya" or in English language, "Self-defense Without Weapons." Until the official adoption of the term "SAMBO" the sport had also been referred to as SAM, and then later SAMOZ. The correct, official Internationally recognized English transliterated spelling is SAMBO.

- Shtikovoi Boi (Bayonet Fighting)
- Sthyk (stick fighting)

In Russia, stickfighting is called shtyk and uses a 5-foot stick called the polka. One of the stories of the origin of shtyk attributes it to the pre-Christian priests of the thunder god Perun. It is closely associated with the use of the pike, one of the big four of Russian Medieval weapons (sword, axe. pike and war hammer). The emphasis is both shtyk and Russian pike fighting was the unbalancing of the opponent. As the arts were designed for mass combat, the ideal was to overturn an opponent, creating an opening in his line and leaving him for your comrades to finish off. This emphasis on overturning in also seen in individual combat where to overturn or unbalance an opponent without injury is considered a sign of high skill. Later these same techniques were adapted to the bayonet. Shtyk is closely associated with the Golitsin family, which was one of the branches of the pre-revolution royalty. Movements with the polka include swinging and thrusts but more emphasis is placed levering and screwing (a twisting type of thrust).

- Slaviano-Goritskaya Bor'ba
- Skobar
- Sobor
- Sokoli Stalina

Sokoli Stalina - Stalins Falcons - This System was used by Stalins bodyguards while he was in power for almost 30 years till his death in 1953 and then later by the Special Military Operations Units for the highest risk missions in KGB, GRU and other government facilities. Close protection has always been the most vulnerable and challenging area in martial arts. The goal of Stalins Falcons was to have a system that combined all the best components of the Russian System on all three levels of human abilities - the physical, the psychological and the psychic. And what is most important, to develop tactics that would not look like martial actions, tactics that are so subtle, that when they were applied it would be barely possible to see what happened and how. Needless to say, this System was kept away from the public by the Russian authorities. In fact, when the Communists came to power in 1917, they suppressed all national traditions. It is only since the late 1980s, with the fall of the Communist era, that these martial traditions and styles started to become available.

- Systema by Uri Sidorov
- Systema ROSS (Rossijskaya Otechestvennaya Sistema Samozashchity)

In English language, this can be translated as the "Russian Native System of Self-defense". ROSS was developed by Gen. Alexander Ivanovich Retuinskih, President of the Russian Federation of Russian Martial Art, Vice-Chairman of the International Combat Sambo ("Unarmed Combat") Commission forFIAS (International Sambo Federation) and Chairman of the Russian Combat Sambo Committee, General Director of the RETAL (Russian Combat Skill, Consultant Scientific and Practical Training) Center, General of the Cossack Military, Chief of Department of Hand-to-Hand Combat. In The System of Russian Martial Art ROSS, the concept of a "technique" is missing. Variations used on the basic movements of ROSS derivefrom circumstances and conditions as they are applied. This makes it possible to eliminate the repetitive variations so as to not give an attackerthe ability to construct a counterattack in advance. When in combat, basic motions are employed in continuous motion until the completeneutralization of the assailant, each preceding motion turning into the beginning of the subsequent one.
