This week, more deep insights on the Against Tension seminar, hosted by Systema HQ Toronto in August 2019.
Your guest commentator? Your guest commentator? None other than Senior Systema Instructor - and Founder of Fight Club Toronto - Emmanuel Manolakakis.
A veteran Instructor and direct student of Vladimir Vasiliev for over 25 years, Emmanuel always presents a fresh and fascinating perspective on Systema training. In this interview, we talk about:
His overall impressions of the seminar
The importance of looking at things with fresh eyes, and a beginner's mind
How fine details (if you can see them) make the difference between competence and mastery
The difference between functional relaxation (or "relaxing forward") and physical/psychological collapse
Much to chew on, here. Many thanks to Manny for taking the time to share his insights.
