This week, a lively discussion with security professional, IDF intelligence officer, and instructor at Systema Miami, Joe Gehr.
Born in Columbia, raised in Aruba, and later a resident of Israel and the United States. Joe has a fascinating background, and trained widely in Filipino, Japanese, and Israeli martial arts before beginning Systema in 2005. Today, he teaches Systema applications to special operatives, SWAT teams and VIP protection units - in the USA and abroad.
Here we touch upon:
Systema as the ultimate art of awareness
the difference between military and civilian martial arts
the place for strategy and tactics
the necessity of preparation and personal responsibility
