    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Systema Look

    So there's no truth to it? I mean, c'mon. It's been around since the medieval times.

    Here are some sparring clips. I'm not here to say it's good or bad. Just see this. (remove spaces)

    Astrology has been around three or four times longer than that.
    "Systema, which means, 'the system'..."

    The truth is you need to go post a Bio in Newbietown before it's too late.

    Systema? No, it hasn't been around since medieval times.

    Bigger question here, does anybody actually know how long it has been around? And, does it play well into how terrible it is?

    Wow a 9 year necro in MABS.

    Fixed your (literally) broken link.



    I'll say it. It's bad.

    Why do I think that? When I watch a sparring video and I see a lot of wild movement where the players keep themselves open to multiple knockouts over and over by not protecting themselves....or straight up smiles and laughing and overall laziness....it's bad.

    Another reason this video is bad is because if this sparring were effective at all, you'd expect there would be competition-worthy Systema, and thus video out there of Systema competition.

    So, videos of arts sparring badly do not remove the Mark of Bullshido. That would require fighting (in a sports venue or outside one) with Systema.

    Oh and any video using the great Carl Orff's "O Fortuna" as battle music had better be much, much better than this. Otherwise it's pouring syrup on ****, and expecting pancakes (to paraphrase Trip)

    I think this guy (who necro'd the 9 year old MABS thread on Systema) is confused.

    No, just because "O Fortuna" has been used on the uber-rare "Systema 'Sparring'" videos does not mean it comes from King Arthur's days.

    The handwork looks like _ing _hun and those pirouettes weren't impressive either. IMHO, they are leaving themselves open for a lot of damage by dancing around and giving their backs up.
    Bottom line: Systema = complete bullshido.
