Wave Striking, Wiggling and other Wackiness
Day 2 will highlight the powerful striking of Russian Systema. Even systemaâ€™s harshest critics who have experienced itâ€™s hitting first hand are surprised by its power. The key is biomechanical efficiency and the erosion of needless antagonistic contraction. Â Based on the 1000 year old tradition of Slavic boxing, emphasis is placed on elliptical, figure-8 striking flowsthat pass seamlessly from one target to another, and address multiple opponents in all directions. Critics of the approach often cite their belief that Slavic striking,although powerful, is too obvious and leaves the subject open to easy counter hits. In day 2, practitioners will learn how to dispel these concerns through a forge of essential striking drills designed to protect and shield the practitioner while delivering fast, subtle and devastating hits to their opponents. You will learn how to maximize wave power but then compress in down into its intended battlefield form.
