I have seen most DVDs of Systema Spetsnaz, and systema by Mikhal Ryabko and Vladimir Vasiliev. Last is Pramek which is inspired by Russian martial arts. Mikhail Ryabko and Vladimir Vasiliev have around 40 dvds and go in depth. Pramek covers the theory well, and show some examples of usage. Systema Spetsnaz is a great combination between both, it covers the theory well and shows a lot of variations in practice and real life scenarios.
Honestly, I think that all DVDs from these 3 instructors complete each other well. But to buy all DVDs is a big investment, and very time consuming to go through. The best solution is to go for the Vadim Starov DVDs!!!
Enjoy, and seek knowledge:)
since that last incident I've been taking the bus with the same gentleman I had a problem with. Yesterday I was alone with him in the bus ride home when, all of a sudden, the gentleman called my name. He said "hey, sam" I turned around and responded with "yes" in a pleasant tone of voice. He proceeded to apologize for his behavior and asked my forgiveness for the whole incident. He said he did not know what came over him that day but that he was really sorry. I assured him I did not held any resentment against him. He proceed to tell me that he was hurting inside as if something was tearing him apart because of the incident,. He said " you did nothing wrong, I'm ashamed of myself for treating you the way I did." I, again told him it was ok and that I would like to be his friend. He accepted and we shook hands.
He was visibly shaken and humble in his apology. As we talked further I told him I'm in the process of opening a business. He asked me what? and I told him I am a bodyguard and martial art instructor and will open an academy soon in my area in Vacaville, CA soon. He said " oh, god I'm glad you did not respond in kind or I would be in serious trouble. I told him that in the systema we try to avoid such encounters whenever possible. I also told him that the Systema is a christian based martial art. He again apologized and said he also was a christian (catholic) and was ashamed of his behavior.
As we parted ways he said he was feeling much better and that I was a better man than he was. I invited him to take classes with me in So. San fracisco, Ca as I teach a few people on lunch time.
The Combat Systema approach outlined in this video series was created by Kevin Secours, after years of high-level study under top Russian masters. It is defined by a scientific approach to biomechanics, breath training, and combat psychology. The continuous use of pressure testing to measure and refine those attributes, combined with continued research in human performance, has helped shaped the most complete solution possible for the needs of the modern practitioner.
Secours' first video with Paladin Press, Combat Systema: The Russian Martial Art of Hand-to-Hand Combat focuses on empty-hand combat techniques. From upper body and lower body strikes to stance infiltration, power generation, escapes from holds, and power absorption, this video offers a comprehensive, integrated understanding of the ground-breaking Russian training methodologies, specifically adapted for Western students and practitioners.

The first thing that comes to mind when watching this essentially informative DVD is how do they know all of this? When Major Konstantin Komarov speaks of exiting a car underwater and saving your child, he does not come off as theorizing about it. It's clear that he's been there and done that.. often! Vladimir's demonstration in civilian surroundings is priceless. The ease and fashion in which he moves in the real world is indistinguishable from the classroom. A hallmark of a skills that directly translates to the world we live in. --T Nguyen
This video is informative, thorough, and useful from several perspectives: 1) General Civilian Issues - the video deals with scenarios for becoming comfortable in and around your vehicle in preparation for possibly anxious situations, entering and exiting the vehicle in a variety of different scenarios - inc. road accident, vehicle falling into water, saving trapped passenger\'s, escaping moving vehicles, etc. This is very informative. We spend time learning how to exit an airplane in case of emergency every time we fly. Statistically speaking, a motor vehicle is more likely to get into an accident than an airplane, so in my opinion this portion of the material in the DVD should be presented and offered to all civilians because it could save many lives. 2) Military and Paramilitary - for example, scenarios dealing with ballistics and weapons in and around the vehicle, how to use the vehicle to your advantage as a shield, what parts of the vehicle to use and not to use, etc. Also shown in the DVD is how and which parts of the vehicle are often used in extreme urban warfare, assassination, and terrorist situations, which was very interesting. Some of the situations that Konstantin discussed were mind-boggling and I don\'t think even Robert Ludlum or Ian Fleming would have thought about some of these scenarios. 3) Self Defense in all situations - this portion of the video deals with situations where you are being attacked with fists, legs, chokes, knives, guns, etc.. around and in the vehicle. The part I liked the most in this section was how Vlad used the vehicle itself and the edges and protruding portions of the vehicle as weapons against the attacker. This ties in well with the video on Confined Spaces, which is also a must in anyone's RMA video collection. Again, I would be hard-pressed to name anything out there that teaches this material to the general public. So I am rating this a must have to anyone interested in Systema practice. --Jim Rigopoulos
Vladimir's new Car Fight DVD is useful for the everyday driver, professional driver and professional bodyguard. The techniques displayed are extremely efficient and relevant for a small confined space where you are limited of movement and time. The efficiency of these techniques are extremely important in the real world, life and death situations depicted in the DVD! A true testament to Vladimir and Konstantin's experience and knowledge showcased in this DVD and others, is that you don't have to be an expert in any field of training in order to be able to comprehend and utilize their techniques. The instruction is clear and concise and the footage displays every detail of the movement in each demonstration. --Sergei Ma Prices & Ordering
