Scott you should know better than to post people's IP addresses without consent. You should probably edit your posts. People's disent is not a reason to invade their privacy or disclose personal information.

Hey Scott, new to the forum and just discovering
Russian martial arts. I've been to your site and read
all the threads lately. I'm wondering if you could
give me the reader's digest answer to a few questions.
I apoligize to any of you out there who may already
know the answers to these questions but I'm sure there
are others out there who are like me, in the infant
stages of learning about ROSS.

1. Sambo, Kadochnikov,Sistema and Ross. How do they
relate historically if at all? Is there a chicken/egg
relationship to these disciplines?
2. I notice from some information on your threads that
athletes from non martial arts backgrounds benefitting
from ROSS. Does this imply that cross training with
other grappling/striking martial arts will not hamper
the learning curve when learning ROSS but rather
complement each other?
Is it safe to say that you can learn ROSS as a stand
alone system or you can learn ROSS to amplify whatever
system you have been practicing?
3. I am starting up at a new school and will be
studying grapping arts for the first time after years
of mostly striking arts. What ROSS training aids would
you suggest? Tendon strengthening? 47 years old and
300lbs.
4. Finally, I am in the Atlanta area. Is there any
good news for me and my fellow southerners as far as
getting direct exposure to ROSS instruction?

Thanks very much for your time. Keep u

DAT,

I know I 'm not Scott, but I figured I could save you and Scott some time if I give you some preliminary information to chew on.

" Is it safe to say that you can learn ROSS as a

Yes, the unique training methodologies of ROSS make this a possability.

I shall let Scott answer the other questions I 'm not a history guru my friend, but I hope I have helped.

Limit your options, limit your Survival.
