Russian Systema Spetsnaz


Systema Spetsnaz TrainingI already practice martial arts. But I would like to improve my skills with Russian Systema Spetsnaz. For that , I need your help to tell me with which DVD I should start with. I went on your site and looked at the instructional  DVDs. I thought that I should start with DVD 1 : the warrior s path and DVD 5 : internal wave energy (I eliminated DVD 3 : elements and exercises because I already practice  martial arts so I know a lot of them ) I would like to give me your opinion on that. Thank you very much. 


hand to hand combat trainingHello, DVD #1 and #5 are great choice! Since you already have Martial arts knowledge, I recommend you also to get:
DVD #7 – Wrist LocksDVD #8 – Takedowns and DVD #10 – Energy Strikes.

DVD #1 – The Warrior’s Path –  the goal of this DVD is to give a general understanding of the Systema Spetsnaz system, not to teach a specific technique. Although, it has several combat applications and principles.

DVD #5 – definitely, YES! It contains theory, exercises and principles of using wave motion for punches, strikes, kicks and takedowns.

I also recommend DVD #14 – Powerful Joints. This are no martial arts techniques, but this DVD will give you extra flexibility for the combat confrontations, especially for practicing figure 8 and wave motions which are fundamental in our style.

We also recommend Systema Spetsnaz Self-Defense Seminar (8.5 hours video course). Videos are available on DVDs and to view online. With online option – you will have unlimited access to the videos, can watch them as many times as you want from any device (computer, tablet, smart phone).

The explanations on the video are very simple and cover different subjects. It covers both – combat techniques and breathing/relaxation exercises. It will be a great place to start. After watching this set, you can decide which part of combat you’d like to focus on and select the proper DVD for yourself.

      Hello Stephen,

      It varies for each person. It can be from 3 months to 5 years, depending on your current martial arts experience, physical shape, ability to learn. There are no limit in mastery. Every time you practice you are getting better and learn something new or sharpen what you’ve already know.

    I am interested in the instructor course. I have studied systema briefly about 10 years ago after attending a couple of weekend workshops and buying dvds but I couldn’t find a local instructor.
    My question is how long does it take to become an instructor and what is the success rates of the evaluation?

    Hi, I was wondering which DVD you would recommend for a self-defense/anti-bullying situation. The aim wouldn’t be to completely hurt the guy, just to keep him away. Any help would be great. Thanks!

          I recommend you to get our Self-Development DVDs: #11, #12 and #13. It will help you to get your confidence from “inside” and people will notice it.

          Also, buy DVD #3 – Elements & Exercises – it will help you to work on your muscles and physical strength.

          So, you can work on both: your inner confidence and outer confidence.

          And then, get DVD #7 – Wrist Locks. This will help you to know some combat tricks/techniques what to do if someone grabs you or pulls you by your jacket or shoulder.

          Those 5 DVDs will be the best set for you purpose. And if you get it as a set – you will get 25% off. Here is a link –
