    Not to defend Systema or anything, (and I don't know **** about grappling,) but isn't it possible that the photo of that armbar is taken slightly before or after its ideal position, hence making it look bad? Just a thought... I mean, hopefully they aren't posing for the pictures so there's probably a very tight timeframe on when to take a picture.

    Your knees should be squeezed together before you lean back. There's not a vast amount of point in doing it otherwise.

    Are they exercising, or is it some sort of drill?

    That looks like a great exercise to strengthen your core.

    Yep it's an exercise - you do front and back, and try to keep the body straight as the stick is lowered.

    since when did "pics of disaster" get expanded to include bodyweight excercises and stretching?

    (as for the armbar, comrade-uke appears to be tapping, so comrade-tori's technique is evidently good enough for compliant drilling. hopefully he improves on it, though...)

    Systema looks like really, really bad aikido.
