Russian Systema: Training partner around Pasadena, CA
« on: December 26, 2008, 05:12:51 PM »
Hi, guys,

I am practicing Russian Systema. My main place of training is too far for me to go there more than once a week. So I am looking for a training partner around Pasadena, CA. Styles and weapons do not matter; in Systema we work with any available tools. I also love cross-training and sparring. They force you to think and work outside the box and teach variety. I will be happy to adjust to the partner’s skill level and can work at any level of speed and contact.

Best wishes
Pero

Dan Farley

Hey Pero,

I live in Studio City, but I don't know much about Russian Systema...

Hi, Dan,

You can check Systema on youtube, although most of the video there is the training one, to work on a particular set of skills rather than to demonstrate an actual application. There is also a great deal of crap there that is called Systema, but it is not what we do. Here is the link to a guy under whom I train in LA. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YiuXkP9WWaM (although it is also a training speed. When he speeds up, I hardly can keep him in sight.) I am far from being that good as he is, but it will give you an idea. What do you practice and would you like to meet? I will copy this message to your email in case you want contact me. I check email regularly, but I will also come here in a couple of days to see if there is any response.

Hope we can make it work.
Best wishes.
Pero
