astarg,

have you ever been to czechoslovakia, hungary, russia or israel? I have spent extensive periods of time in each. take a look at a map of europe and see exactly how "close" prague is to moscow, or for that matter Budapest is.

if you have something of value to contribute, feel free. but you seem to be alittle boy with too much time on his hands and no library card, so go troll someplace else.

Wow...did anyone look at the reads on this thread? Over four thousand!! Look in any other forum...you will see very few threads with this read count..

I guess the Krav/Systema subject is interesting to the lurkers... *shrug*

It also seems the resource threads at the top get a lot of hits as well.

Hey Globetrotter,

I appreciate the fact that you have travelled to many places and had a first hand chance to see things for yourself. Let me say that I am a systema student and have checked out some of the history of KM and it all revolves around the man called Imi Lichtenfield. I do recall that he grew up in eastern Europe and was exposed to fighting arts since his father was a policeman who had a reputation of single-handedly fighting and capturing street criminals. Imi is the main person associated with KM and as I understand he many good qualities as a teacher and could judge character very well. It said that he would not teach someone that he felt would use the knowledge and skills for evil purposes. This is exactly what Vladimir Vasiliev (Systema Instructor)has done as well. A basic love of goodness and hate for evil is part of their character. If you read about Mr. Valsilev you will find out that he left the USSR after the breakup for he was tired of the internal politics of the country and its effects. No doubt Imi moved to the land that was later called Israel but it is a fine point to limit the geograhpy of the KM system.
