Video Training Course

I’m going to be putting out a series of video practice guides. This is both for my regular Systema students as well as anybody interested in mobility, health, martial arts, yoga, dance, meditation or self-inquiry. I’m just calling this course a Mind-Body Practice, since it really isn’t necessarily martial arts related. For those of you who study Systema or any other martial art, relaxed, coordinated, smooth movement is fundamental to health and practical application. We don’t spend enough time training our bodies in this way. This is deep training for the body and psyche, if you apply yourself to regular practice.

You can follow the whole series on my website starting here.

Videos and written materials will be posted Mondays and Thursdays. I’ll post reminders and updates here as well. The lessons will be sequential and progressive, so anybody jumping onboard should start at the beginning. Each lesson can cover a week of daily practice, but the series also serves as a guide for self-paced training.


I want to thank Kaizen Taki of Movement Daily, as well as Vladimir Vasiliev, Konstantine Komorov, and the larger Systema community for exposing me to these kinds of practices.
