Great! Right now it looks like a go for me. Hopefully nothing changes between now and then. I look forward to seeing all the Florida Systema folks. Take care.

Just realized something...
It will be ONE YEAR since Russian Combat Academy in Sarasota officially opened its doors... And adult beverages will flow... Of course only for medical purposes- to heal and soothe minor :rolleyes: injuries that may happen...

I just finished the Kenpo Beach Bash and part of the Seminar was Martin Wheeler teaching Systema. I have been practicing the martial arts since the age of 15 and have trained in the past twenty years with many teachers who were very good. Some have shown me martial arts that inspired me by their r mastery of there systems. The most impressive things i have seen have come from Ba Gua and Tai Chi masters who can apply their internal arts to an amazing degree of proficiancy and lethal aplication. My primary art at this time is American Kenpo; an art with profound mental and physical applications. I thought that was what I was going to learn from Martin Wheeler. I had expected, by reputation, an extremely aggresive and no nonesense Kenpo martial artist. What I found was a humble man teaching Systema. A name I had only heard mentioned with great respect in Kenpo circles. What I found was an incredible display and teaching teaching methodolgy that moved me. After two days of being given a taste for Systema I knew I had to seek further training. I was and still am thinking about what I learned in those five hours. I was scheduled to compete in Orlando in breaking at the Disney Martial Arts tournament. When MR Wheeler explained a Systema seminar with his instructor was on the same date I altered my plans. Systema is an incredible expression of movement and thought that is simply something you will find yourself compelled to pursue. Then again I can only speak for myself and if you are reading this and have any doubts if you should attend the seminar I promise you no matter your degree of proficiancy in your own art you WILL learn and expand your abilities. Simply put Systema is the greatest thing I have had the pleasure to witness. I hope i can prove to be a worthy student at the seninar.

Martin is amazing - a wonderful martial artist and teacher. Vladimir is even much more so. You will not be disappointed.
