Hypothetically, this concept, in combination with the study of biomechanics and the premise that SAMOZ was supposed to be visually "subtle" and expend only minor energy, might easily have led to an emphasis on physical and psychological relaxation under stress. It would only be a short step from that type of training into the relaxed improvisation drills we see in modern Systema.
technique is an offensive or defensive (or combined) action that manipulates the opponent, so that points can be scored, the opponent placed in a position of disadvantage, or the fight/match won. However, a technique may be implemented unsuccessfully and not achieve any of the above goals. Worse, sambist can end up in a worse position than before he attempted his technique.
Unsuccessful techniques initiated without set-ups, and often as single movements without any relationship to the larger picture of the overall contest, come up more often in beginners than from experienced fighters. This led Spiridonov to come up with the concept of transitions (which was echoed by Volkov and called something else by Oshchepkov) where each and every technique is enriched through its relationship to other techniques where there are transition points in every technique that correspond to certain stages (and levels of completion) of other techniques. Logically connecting the appropriate techniques through good transitions is a key to successful completion of techniques.
Therefore, we would have a standing arm lever moving to the ground to transition to a double hammer lock to transition to binding the opponent to transition to raising him back to standing to transport him elsewhere. In sport, this could simply be 2 points for a half decent throw that transitions to 2 points for a hold down that transitions to a submission hold to end the match. Lastly, this could be a muffed technique morphing into a new, but successful one such as a blown inside sweeping hip throw transitioning to a far ankle pick transitioning to a reverse knee bar.
From there, training the body for speed and power can add to the overall effect of the technique�s success, but that is as far as the technique can be taken �technically�. To increase the success rate of the technique, it must be converted to a �ploy� which could just as easily be translated to �gambit�, or �trick� as in the old phrase, �ju jitsu trick�.
