Breath, Faith and Fire Balls
Russian Systema is based on sound biomechanics. A key part of maximizing performance is the use ofÂ effective breath work. Breath allows us to control our fear and maximize our performance. Too often however, it is allocated near mystical qualities. In some contexts, it is used to induce hyper-ventilation, hyper-compliance and feeble emotional states to make students more susceptible to irresponsible manipulation by their instructors. In day 4, we will lay it all on the lineâ€”the pragmatic and provable to the hokey and magical. We will show you the simple steps to supercharge your breathing and also the dangers of over indulging this work. We will explore susceptibility, psychic energy, and servility and show you how to safe guard yourself from these pitfalls, to be an independent, critical thinking, assertive and self-contained practitioner free of superstition and delusion and to understandÂ the reality and the limits of tactical breathing.
