But there are some good people doing it to compliment their own training, there are idiots, cultists,everywhere? Thats their problem not mine. Respect to all good martial artists everywhere. Im done on here, I have made my point.
    Well, that is one less non-fighter if you really leave. That should help our percentages.

    Don't forget your paper bag.

    There are some good stuff in all system! The issue is that aparently their are much better systems around so why waste your time with systema...

    The posts on here have made people more aware of the system, even the negative ones.
    As their was more bad points than good you should of said "even the good ones"

    The facts remain, that most people on here couldnt fight their way out of a paper bag.
    That's why we take value in what Omega says

    there are idiots, cultists,everywhere? Thats their problem not mine.
    Well seeing you're reading comprehension from Omega's review and responses the 'idiots' in systema may actually be your problem....

    Fact, boxers are practically helpless when grappled and taken off their feet.

    I am a respected boxer, so I think I entitled to an opinion on strikes. Or are you saying that boxing and boxers are bulshido?
    Hmmm, I'd have to say limited.

    Fact, whether you like the system, etc. The punches are very effective, it is like nothing that I have experienced before. Trust me, I was prepared and it made no difference, I was not prepared to deal with the strikes that I received. I tried all the tricks that I know, exhaling, etc. It made no difference. That is the point, its understanable that you or others do not understand what you see on the DVDS.
    Any individual who becomes indoctrinated in a certain methodology (warped or otherwise), tends to want to affirm that body of belief. I talk to people with these same exact reactions you mention whenever folks experience other spiritual awakenings, such as jesus freaks.

    Why am I a moran,
    You're a systema cultist, what further proof do we require?

    I bet you are.

    You only had the vids to work with- and I hate all vids. You are MMA - correct? And only had a few vids to work with.
    Only stupid people have to repeat themselves twice in such a short span.

    i respect your postings of whatever you find negative or postive about systema.
    :bsflag:

    I also feel that if we were not seperated by the coasts..maybe your evaluation might be a bit different.
    Naturally, but nothings stopping you from flying all the way to Hawaii is it?

    Overall - I have no problem with you project. Did not expect a glowing revue of any dvd material -- your investigation was pretty much what I expected..but, still - very well stated.

    I'm meant to be impressed that a large man can hurt someone by punching them as they stand still, arms at their sides, in front of him?

    Visited the Straight Blast Gym yet systemavin?

    Tough crowd. Next you'll be casting doubt on Tony Blair's honesty.

    Cynic.

    You need to be more gull-...err...open-minded.

    He should, I'd enjoy another Karl tanswell commentary on the further ridiculousness of systema.
