    It's funny that the systemites placed this footage in the public domain in order to attract new devotees or perhaps look "cool" but appear to have hoisted themselves by their own petard. I'm eagerly anticipating the systemites response to this extraordinary footage.
    My wife called this one months ago . She called it something along the lines of "Homo-erotic Power Play" . I will admit I wasn't in one hundred percent agreement with her at first . It just seemed to creepy to be true .

    But after the proof of bondage , group hot tubbing , the 3 foot bed room whip , the large squirmy piles of grown men , the standing group grope , the useless but demeaning drills , I don't have many doubts any more either .

    I loled at the summary...could you imagine trying to explain these drills to someone without the video for proof?

    And you're probably on the way to your local systema club right now with your whip, speedos and face-paint. Don't forget the tactical feathers!
    Straight punches make you go blind. More damage is done to a criminals nervous system when they are struck. Strikes that make you stronger. All this and more systema douchebaggery:

    It's not a systema club, it's just somewhere I go to relax and 'hang out' with likeminded people..

    Very funny guys, very funny. How the laugh is on you. Anyone ever been to Moscow/Prague will know what I am talking about. Are you for real, have you seen those Russian/Slavic ladies. They do it for me everytime. And Im not talking about thai ladies with an adams apple either, for those who keep going on about homo erotic play, time to come out of the closet guys. They beat British ladies anytime, no contest, and they are experts at using the whip, how can one lose. Systema = who gives a feck

    I was wondering, do Russian soldiers actually roll over gently and take a bath with captured Chechen rebels too?
