Russian storm fighting competition video
Saw this posted on Martial Talk the other day. i wanted to put it in the history forum but couldn't find it... is it gone?
This is footage of Russian "old style storm fighting". I find it interesting because it is representatively and uniquely russian in the looseness of the limbs, pelvis, and shoulders and in the chaining rather than chambering of strikes and kicks.
This influence can clearly be seen in systema. i wanted to post this in the history forum as a contribution to the argument that systema does have at least some old russian roots. .. if anyone here cares.
Even if nobody here cares it is still some righteous competition footage of a distinctly different striking style.
