Private Investigations and Personal Security/"Systema" as a Self-Defense system

I have spent ten years as a front line Police Officer and trained martial arts for other 20 years.
I personally have found Systema a very effective training tool and now study it exclusively. I do this because it suits and works for me, but I know that it certainly does not suit everyone.
Like all martial arts classes you should simply turn up and give it a go. In one session you should get a feel if the instructor has something to teach. There are some teachers out there that are not very experienced and that is why I would not recommend all systema classes unreservedly.
Give it a go.
