SE UK Bullshido-ers : Systema seminar
Hi guys, as some of you may have noticed in the recent systema thread RobP has mentioned there will be a systema seminar in cambridgeshire 16-17 september. It's looking very likely I'll be able to attend and I'm hoping to bring at least one other from NI. RobP mentioned we'll be able to ask questions and hopefully spar with some of the instructors. This should hopefully end any questions over systema's effectiveness.
I have a few things to ask -
1. Are any other UK Bullshido-ers able/interested in attending?
2. What sort of questions would you like answered of the instructors?
3. As per the sparring itself - as indicated in my profile I have several years experience of Wing Tzun (under a competent instructor), several years of Judo, and a small amount of MMA (mainly wrestling/BJJ) and BJJ experience. I have no doubt I could easily beat someone who is not at least competent in striking or grappling, and have done so on several occasions, so I feel that if a systema practitioner is capable of defeating me using systema, that would at least prove it is not a useless system. Am I right in thinking this or is my ability/experience too little to prove anything if i lose? Certainly if I win it would not be very impressive for systema practitioners.
I will probably be going regardless but I just wanted to know if it would prove to the members of Bullshido that systema is not BS if I am defeated by a systema practitioner.
