Vladimir Vasiliev - Director and Chief Instructor of Systema Headquarters, Toronto

Seminar Topic: Tactics of confrontation

Did you know that:

  • One way to test yourself for reality is to practice working in unexpected situations.
  • The most effective solution for a conflict is both psychological and physical.
  • Hesitation and fear have the same origin.

In this seminar, Vladimir will take you step-by-step from simple to complex challenges.

You will work though imaginative scenarios and learn to handle holds, chokes, strikes, weapons, multiple attackers, in standing and on the ground, armed and unarmed.
You will see how to control tension in yourself and your opponents, how to develop a strong and fast body, and how to magnify your awareness and intuition. The training is suitable for new practitioners and for experienced fighters. This is a rare opportunity to learn directly from and train with Vladimir Vasiliev.

Instructor renewals, upgrades and new evaluations will be available at the seminar.
