I observed the local Systema-"Russian Martial Art" school several months back. My aikido dojo had recently self-destructed and I was looking for a new "home." Yes, there were other aikido dojo in town, but they were too soft for my taste (keep in mind this was before I "discovered" Judo).
Even my Aikidoka-ized ass was not impressed by what I saw. Upon my visit, I was presented with a carefully-worded visitor's packet along with a slick promotional DVD selling the Vladimir Vasiliev lineage of Systema.
Joined the local Judo club instead.

Initial reports were gunshots, coroners report indicated that the victims involved were stabbed, not shot.

I understand that some of the words in that paragraph would appear to be invented off the top of my head, but they're legit.
But yeah, I would have been an absolute animal to control when I was drunk.GET A RED BELT OR DIE TRYIN'.
