    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.

    Fedor Emelianenko on systema:

    (Sorry for the necro, didn't know where to put this.)

    Q: What do you think of the “Russian” combat arts? It’s quite popular now to practice “Slavic styles” of combat, or say the “spetznaz combat art”.

    A (Fedor): I think that the only true Russian fighting style (martial art) is sambo. What people call now days “Russian styles” I honestly do not take seriously. I haven’t seen a single strong school with a solid technique; they most commonly look like amateurs. In fact not “most commonly”, it’s actually what they are – amateurs.
    Why would you try to come up with something Russian, when you can actually practice something Russian? Another example would be religion, why try to demonstrate Orthodoxy, when you can simply live by the Orthodox way?

    Ding! Of course this is what I have said for MANY years. You'd think Fedor would know.....

    You should make a better effort to check out a system beyond one instructor before you start posting that a style is deluded. Short sighted at best.
