~ If a person utilizes continuous movement, the complexity of working against them is infinitely higher.

Move to prevail. What’s the secret?
by Vladimir Vasiliev

Everyone knows that shooting a moving target is much harder than a fixed one. It requires additional efforts and skill. Something similar happens in a fight. If a person utilizes continuous movement, the complexity of working against them is infinitely higher. Not only does it make a single opponent helpless, but also multiple attackers. Even a group of armed opponents loses the advantage when faced with a relaxed person who is ready to react on a free and spontaneous level.
Working on the move provides a unique feeling of distance and almost chess-like combinations in fight dynamics. Such a fighter is always confusing to the attackers by not letting them work as a team, but effectively using them against one another.
Of course everyone tries to move in a fight, but usually it is just ‘transfers of positions’ with small stops, pauses and tension-caused jerky movements. These tension-filled shifts of positions are counterproductive because firstly, they are visible to the opponents and secondly, they are perceived as a threat.
The secret: Systema approach is different. It develops movements that are completely smooth with no tension in the body or the psyche. This is achieved through specialized exercises to gain uninterrupted breathing, awareness breathing, combative breathing, internal control and unique movement and contact drills, which are enjoyable yet challenging.
Keep in mind that a tense person does not even know what power is. It is an illusion to think that a tense person can be strong. We have to realize that there is a huge reserve of power, spontaneity, speed and precision in every individual. If we remove the tension and fear (along with other negative emotions), these powerful qualities unfold, expand and allow you to prevail in any confrontation.
Systema training addresses the core and flows smoothly through all parameters of human abilities.

Not Systema, but there's a lot to be learned here - your opponent reacts to what you do, and you can capitalize on - and sometimes predict - their responses to your actions.
