Taizo Akiyama –
Eric’s class was very interesting because of what I noticed about the adjustment of tension in the body. I really enjoyed the task of writing letters with the opposite hand in the one-handed push-up position. I have not done bridge for a long time, but I realized that it is a very important exercise. I will try to incorporate it into my regular home exercises. I learned a lot from the first exercise on adjusting the tension in the head by breathing. I was able to notice tension in the back of my head, as this was a difficult area for me to notice tension. I appreciate that Eric-sensei is always energetic and gives me power even though it is through a screen. The very interesting thing about Systema is that there is always something new to notice, so after the class I have a deeper understanding of myself. It is interesting to incorporate what I notice in class into my daily life, because it allows me to see things from a new perspective. Thank you for your always enjoyable classes. I look forward to the next seminar.

The element of self understanding is remarkable in Systema. It is real self healing.
