First-level instructor: Randall Jones – July 2004, Fribourg, Switzerland

Last year, I had the opportunity to take part in a two-week systema seminar of SpetsNaz held in Tver. For six hours each day, I trained with Russian military and non-military personnel directly on the military base as well as in the surrounding forest. The systema seminar was a very enriching experience not only from a martial arts perspective but from a human one as well.

The instructors were top-notch in their field and showed us the various techniques in a very professional and efficient manner. We learned about bio mechanics, levers and angles of attack, the importance of breathing and relaxation, how to roll, perform locks and throws, toss knives, avoid strikes with and without weapons, hit and kick opponents. We also learnt how to load and unload an AK-74 and safely jumped (several times) from a vehicle moving at 10, 20, 30 and 40 km/hour on asphalt.

At the same time, all of the participants and instructors showed kindness and generosity towards me and the three other foreigners who attended the seminar. Spetsnaz training took place in a spirit of openness, warmth and hospitality. I hope to train again one day with the people that I met there.

The Director of the Center, Mr Vadim Starov, made extra special efforts to accommodate me during my stay. He found a Russian family with whom I could stay, arranged to have someone pick me up and take me to/from training, and when I was unable to understand what was being said in Russian, he found very capable people to interpret into English for me.

I would like to thank MrStarov and all of the instructors at the International Center of Russian Martial Arts for their efforts to promote SystemaSpetsNaz in Russia and in other countries.
