Summit of the Masters Summer Camp 2010

In any occupation, active involvement for several years gives one a level of confidence and expertise. In sports, it certainly helps building proficiency and skill. Nonetheless, many stop exercising because the initial excitement is gone, they get bored, and other things in life gradually start taking precedence. This somehow reminds me of a fitness club to which a paid member goes three times a year.

It would be misleading to qualify Systema as a sport for a number of reasons. Among other things, it is free from competitive aspects intrinsic to most sports. By definition, competitiveness stimulates one's ego; eventually, it becomes a distraction which reduces awareness and ability to respond naturally.

 

Valentin Talanov's Breathwork seminar

Short of the Summer Camps (which are yet to be beaten), this is the most profound Systema seminar that I've had the privilege to attend.

First off, I was amazed to find out from my wife, a Yoga instructor, that there is quite a bit of similarity between some of the fear management, healing and warm-up work in the seminar and her yoga practice, especially as it relates to the breathing.

Interestingly, while drawing on some aspects of Yoga such as relaxation and non-agression, Systema improved on the principles by adding a whole new dimension - movement. If some consider Yoga boring, they definitely should try Valentin's style Systema classes - the result of a synergy between the two arts is very practical, effective, useful and enjoyable.
