 All levels of experience welcome!
Why people of all levels should attend:
The knife is a very common and available item that can easily be turned into a deadly weapon. Even more, any person with minimum amount of training can do a lot of damage to multiple untrained and unsuspecting victims.
In this seminar we aim to work directly with the elements that withhold us from putting up a successful defence - fear, misconceptions, restricted movements, tension. It is not a new move that will help you prevail. It is the ability to see clearly the situation and know your options based on your capabilities and experience as it is today. We aim to have participants come to terms with their abilities by the end of the seminar.
About your instructor: Cristian Isbasescu has been involved in various Martial Arts in the last 19 years. He has been studying Systema since 2010 when he was introduced to this amazing Martial Art by Vladimir Vasiliev. To this day he is even more intrigued and excited by this martial art and what Vladimir teaches than when he started training. It is a testament to what Vladimir and many other willing training partners throughout the world offer. Cristian has also been part of the Canadian Army as an infanteer for more than a decade. During his time in the army he completed one of the toughest selection processes in the Canadian Army.
