    Hey, I'm just saying....

    But the guy instructing didnt seem to know how to teach. It seemed as though he was trying to hard to think his way through it.

    I also disagreed with punching with flat fists.

    as opposed to "round fists"?

    English was a stupid language, the guy who first taught me really didn't know how to teach. So I gave up and now I speak Esperanto.
    Many things we do naturally become difficult only when we try to make them intellectual subjects. It is possible to know so much about a subject that you become totally ignorant.

    See what you've inadvertently done here Internet Budoka? You've rallied the cult.

    It's like a bees nest - hilarious honey inside, but best just to leave it alone.

    SFGOON this is a serious question... how do you explain this? Alot of the systema guys in this thread seemed to say that this kind of stuff doesn't exist in systema...

    YouTube - systema psychic demo

    Do you guys get taught stuff like that? Or is it just at seminars?

    How do I explain it? I say...

    "What the **** is THAT?!" :new_Eyecr

    I've never seen it myself, and presentation of such a thing would cause me to saunter out chuckling and shaking my head. I'd go get a burger or some ****.

    The "psychic work" that I've seen is better defined as "psych-out work."

    Systema is often excellent-teaching-drill-nougat wrapped in a candy-coating of facepalm. You do have to look deep at times.
