A young Mikhail Ryabko's Systema - Ever Shifting History?
I know this is sort of beating a dead horse, but what the hell, has anyone else noticed that certain "arts" like Systema have an ever changing history. For instance who actually trained Ryabko? Better yet what ever happened to his video entitled "Young Master." It seems to have disappeared. While googling Ryabko Young and video will bring up a thread on Systema's forum, you will notice if you click on it that they have even taken the thread down from their forum. Why you might ask. Because it showed Ryabko doing Kung-Fu and getting rocked by his training partner.
I knew Ryabko was a cult leader when I was sitting around witih a bunch of Systemists watching the video, seeing Ryabko getting beat down and one of them says(no ****),
" I don't understand what he is doing there."
I reply, " He is losing"
He replies, "Not possible. He has some sort of strategy."(this is as Ryabko is on the ground under his opponent taking fists to the face), "I am just not sure what it is."
I reply "..."
Next sequence shows Ryabko very badly attempting a stick dis-arm which results in him getting beat with the stick.
Same guy say, "I am just not understanding his strategy here, he cannot be losing, I just don't understand what he is doing."
My final retort, "He is getting beat like a rabid dog." At which point I just walk away.
Now for my question, and I realize that I will demonstrate the full ignorance of my noobness in this one, are their other systems like this or is this kind of brain dead behavior unique to Systema?

Is It Fake, being an Internalist, has a natural affinity with Cystema and won't hear a bad word about it. Don't show him the video, he'll deny its validity as everyone knows Rybako doesn't have the real cystem.You are a total Douchbag. Train more, post nevermore.

As I don't own the video, the American/Canadian site don't offer it anymore and have removed all links and forum threads related to it... the best I can do is the
Second video from the bottom, you can see Ryabko in a Gi with a black belt... if you want to see him get beat down, buy the video for yourself and share it with the rest of us.

I've seen an older video of Ryabko getting knocked around but I don't know if it's the same one.

The above is my point. No it isn't a dig at RobP at all. No video equals hearsay. Then the debate rages on because non-systema practitioners whine about him getting his ass kicked. Then pro-systema practitioners whine and say he didn't.
Then it turns into a huge cluster with name calling and other nonessential things.
Kickcatcher knows this he is just being a little bitch because, no one rallies around his ***** ass antics anymore.

If the vid is still readily available in the west put a link to it. I put a link to the one I was talking about on his web site, there he is in a gi.
