goodlun.. 8 years of only technique based training, were my instructors were crap. But with my other training Ive gotten alot better and now focus on the more important parts of grappling. Why so negative? I'm not lying...
Throw a knife into the ring, and the person who wins will probably be the guy who grabs the knife first, regardless of what styles the competitors train in. That's my opinion anyway.

Do you know how lucky you are? To be doing Judo ever since you were a kid and not falling for bullshit arts like Ninjutsu, Aikido or otherwise at the start of your martial arts training?
I punch myself everyday for starting a bullshit art instead of Judo, and starting too late too. I would kill to be in your place.
And you come here with this Systema **** and expect everyone to embrace your stupid decision?
You can be doing some great **** in Judo or MMA in the future but you choose this fucking **** come on man, what a fucking waste of time.
Don't believe this **** about knives and weapons and the street vs. the ring, this is all tired overplayed bullshit man, if you can fight you can fight anywhere, ring, street, barn, Jupiter I don't give a ****.
Everyone will lie to you, everyone will justify their choice of Systema to you, just like you are doing. Nobody wants to be the fool that picked the wrong ****...
I say this with love and I wish you luck, mate. I'm not hating.
But for fucks sakes I hope this post knocks some sense into you. Don't waste your fucking time man...Stick to the stuff that works.
Mate, I started with judo at the age of nine because my friend trained it. Stopped because of my instructors and I just simply got tired of it and wanted to try something new. End of story.

agge you have no basis form which to argue - clearly you lack both experience and clarity of vision. You are trotting out the same old, same old horseshit every single asshole instructor and student in every single asshole art puts forth - and it is no more cogent now than it was then.
The same accusations - THE EXACT SAME ACCUSATIONS - that your bullshit opening spiel states about "sport fighters" applies to Systema...the biggest difference being that you canot fight in the ring OR against a fucking knife
So congrats - I had forgotten about how much I hated this kind of fucking bollocks and claims of "t3h d434dly" and now you have started me off again. Thanks a fucking bunch
Sambo is cool, MMA is cool.
