As a Canadian who owns the whole Father Ted series on DVD I take offense at your aspersions towards us and humour

Father Ted, very funny and so close to the bone its untrue. Favourite scene, when a group of priests get lost in a store, ladies underwear department, legendary.
When Dougal is on the plane and confronted with the big DO NOT PUSH red button in the cockpit
The only opinion that's of any value here is McSlughoot's. Slughoot, who's the head instructor that got RNC'd?
Well we know his opinion about Priests, etc. Curious, though about who he trained with in Systema, names, places, etc.
Vali Majd is the guy who got RNC'ed, but not by me, by one of the guys from my club. We operate out of the same building (the Comox Valley Boxing Club), our classes either coming right before or right after theirs.

In short it looks like Omega was right from the start .
Thank you all for playing . Feel free to continue to defend Systema and it's homo-erotic powerplay . I am no longer even slightly interested in traveling to see a class anymore . Call me close minded , ignore my comment , what ever .
My mind is made up . Systema gets two thumbs down unless you want to get in on some mono-e-mono light BDSM time . I have stated from the beganing that it looks stupid as hell and appeared to have silly ( yet useless ) training methods .I figured it was becouse it wasn't the "Real Systema" , but after this Moscow trip , which was suppose to be the best Systema has to offer , I am done with it except to imform others as to what they could be getting into .
I will continue to train in Martial Arts and seek the best instruction I can , from people who train to fight , and have verifiable records , ( be it comps , or amature , pro levels .)
Too many cops , military personal ( who end up being cooks , repairmen , paper pushes , etc ) , and prison guards claim to be expirenced fighters , killers , and in the know just end up being larpers who are full of Bullshido , Parlor Tricks , and are masters of manipulation ( concerning their students ) .
I am sorry but with enough video evidence YES you can judge an art , it's training methods , and it's level of effectiveness .
On the bright side ... I may continue to look into Systema becouse Cults , their leaders and followers fascinate me .
Yeah I study/have studied up on the Mormons , Baptists, Satanists , Paganism , and all sorts of Fundies for the same reason ....

I will get a direct quote from the guy and post his full name on Monday.
