I have just returned from a seminar with both Vladimir Vasiliev and Mikhail Ryabko hosted in Bern. It was a wonderful event of meeting friends and making new ones from all over the place. We al learned a lot by talk and by movement. The spirit of the teachers stands above all with generosity and skill we can all feel fortunate to experience. The topics were health and natural movement, single and multiple attackers and mass work. Working with knives and of course all was covered in a way to open the eyes of the novice and to bring further understanding to the sligtly more experienced. I enjoyed many lessons from both teachers and one that I think is important to share is that the basic drills they give are complete and should be understood and not left after a while. The mastery comes from being good at the basics and this is a great lesson for life.
Again my thanks, Sharon Friedman Systema Israel.
