Any martial arts enthusiasts out there? If so, do you have a webpage where we could do reciprocal links? http://www.geocities.com/presuppositionalist/ma_index.html Tell me a little about your primary art. Mine is Systema - Russian for "The System." It is said to date back to the Cossacks and developed over the years until it became restricted during the communist years to only their Special Forces (Spetsnaz) soldiers. After the collapse, it was revealed in its new form to the world after having been perfected during the Soviet years into an extremely efficient and complete combat fighting art. I was involved in Karate for a time but ended up concentrating in Systema a few months ago.
