    It'll save me some typing if I just hunt out my own posts from the last time we beat this to death. Hold the phone ...

    Sadly I can no longer afford a phone. These days my MO is e-mail and smoke signal. Sometimes I just get drunk and shout at the top of my lungs at odd hours of the morning. I suppose I can hold that...

    I don't mean to sound bitter, cold, or cruel, but I am, so that's how it comes out.

    I just found this video in my utube recommendations. I have to say, the physical conditioning of these systema guys appears to be pretty good. I really like the rolling drills they're doing, and I think its impressive when you can tumble without hurting yourself on a hard surface. I think some of the exercises they are doing could help with fighting. Again I'll say I'm starting to see systema more as a something like crossfit or yoga, which can help a fighter but isn't a fighting art in itself.

    That's probably a good way of looking at it for those who can't

    http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/style

    With MA's, style generally refers to techniques taught, specifics about those techniques that are particular to that system (especially stance), and the delivery method. While jump-rope may help prepare a boxer by conditioning his timing and endurance, jump-rope on its own isn't a style.

    There is another meaning of style being the unique characteristics of a given fighter, ie. Ali, Tyson, Robinson. The combination of boxing techniques that these guys rely upon and employ effectively that become characteristic of them as fighters is a style.
