    You are taking KFS seriously? What the hell? He's a gimmick. He makes work go by faster and will never accept a challenge in earnest.

He used face-to-fist technique and balls-to-foot technique among others which I'm sure are also featured in the Systema curriculum.
    They skip that and go straight to 'knife defense using torso' IIRC. I still thought some of the strength and flexibility stuff looked good, but I'm pretty sure that's not unique to Systema.

    There are movement/sensitivity exercises in which a knife tip placed against the torso is used as a point of reference - I'm guessing that the idea is that if you're ever in that dire situation, it's better to twist away and hope for a shallow cut across the bones and muscles (and then kill the other guy if you can) than to stand there and let them stab you.

    Once or twice on the online excerpts, I've seen Systemists using the torso to lever the flat of a blade out of an opponent's hand, usually after having locked the wrist and/or elbow. As usual, many of these are improvised experiments performed by students doing low-speed, low-resistance work.

    Systema is taught and practiced very differently from most MA/self defense methods. As far as I can make out, there are comparatively few techniques that are unique to Systema; the art is based on progressive experiments with tactical movement, not on learning a specific set of techniques. I believe that this is a way around the "wait, you're supposed to punch with your left hand" problem.

    Most Systema exercises are freestyle/improvised, performed first at low speed/resistance and then progressively harder and faster as the students become able to handle them safely. In the process, tactics and moves that don't stand up to the harder/faster work are dropped away and the student will ideally end up with a set of flexible, high-percentage skills.

    I'd be interested in a comparison of Systema with this competitive 'Combat Sambo' stuff that seems to have produced fighters with good verifiable records.

    FWFIW, I'm developing a theory about the historical relationships between Ryabko Systema and SAMBO. I'm speculating that the Ryabko style is a development of Victor Spridonov's SAMOZ method, which he developed after suffering an injury that forced him to stop participating in sport SAMBO matches.

    Spridonov was a WW1 veteran and was one of the real pioneers of the modern RMA, heavily involved in designing the various forms of SAMBO.

    Due to his injury he began to use the massive resources of the NVKD's Dinamo organization, which included research into a huge number of ethnic MA/combat sports and military CQB methods as well as sports science, psychology, etc. to develop a new method based on more subtle movements.

    This method (known variously as SAM and as SAMOZ) apparently found favor with Spetsnaz units assigned to bodyguard duties and to covert operations, presumably because it could be used to take people down without a lot of spectacle or athletic effort. SAMOZ later seems to have spread to other departments within the KGB and the Russian government in general, for use by workers and operatives who were not required to train as regular soldiers but still required a means of self defense; and elements appear to have been mixed back in to the more mainstream Combat SAMBO courses for use by injured soldiers, etc.

    Please note that much of this is guesswork based on a bit of preliminary research - I'm hoping that more verifiable historical information will come to light.

    Why do you care and why do you think it is so hard to get this connection ?

    I was wondering when you were going to bring up the fact that you just happen to be researching Systema and have expirence in a proven Russian Martial Art System .

    I was starting to think I was remembering one of your older posts wrong .

    I'm interested in finding out how modern RMA (including the various SAMBO forms, ROSS, K-Sys, Ryabko Systema, etc.) were developed. Most of the available info. online is vague, with references to ancient Cossacks, etc. and I would like to know the real, verifiable history.

    As to why it's a difficult research topic, a lot of that has to do with the language barrier and also with the fact that most of this development seems to have happened under the Communist regime in Russia. As with many things, there's the official version of the truth, and then there's what actually happened.

    For example, most official Communist histories of SAMBO refer to Anatoly Kharlampiev as the founder, but more recent (and possibly more objective) scholarship suggests that Kharlampiev was simply the most politically expedient person to credit as the founder.
