Knife Defence Volume 1 – Overhead Stabs
When a knife stab comes from the top, there are a number of techniques to overcome it. Vladimir Vasiliev shows you a variety of options for each technique, clearly demonstrated at instructional and faster speed.
WARNING: This film is an exception to all Systema videos and lessons. In 1995, when this film was produced, Systema was new outside of Russia. The Systema approach of free, spontaneous movements, and absence of fixed form was new to the world of martial arts. To help students capture this style, Vladimir Vasiliev presented his moves through steps and components.
Technique-based approach shown in this film is only an additional option for those who have already grasped the concepts of Systema’s tension-free, natural and spontaneous movements.
Watch the detailed explanations of every move and replays done at slow and faster speed.
