Change Accordingly 

September 30, 2020


The importance of flexibility and adaptation to change can’t be overemphasized. Truly great champions are aware of this whole-heartedly which suggests not holding to a fixed plan, but rather changing according to the unfolding of events. Teach students how to adapt and adapt quickly is a big part of what I’ve been teaching at FightClub for almost 20 years now. Adaptation is learned and grasped when you are given the opportunity to react to changing situations in training, and in all kinds of day-to-day situations.

COVID-19 is not a problem too me, but rather a puzzle. It didn’t stop my life or put it on hold, I just continued right along with what I’ve always done in life – adapted and evolved.  Something that is a foundation principle in SYSTEMA.

It is impossible to anticipate all eventualities. The best way to plan for something unpredictable is to not be ‘afraid to adapt’. Is that what you are doing? Or are you waiting or someone else to tell you what to do? I cannot answer those questions for all of you, just something to reflect on I guess. What I can tell you, is its something I will be focusing on over the next few months.

“Illusion is a part of fear. You need to learn how to see through it”  

The only certainty is the uncertainty of life. Change will occur, and your Systema training will be right there to give you the courage and strength to move forward.

See you in class,
