I am not sure how easy it is to get hold of Combat magazine in the USA, but anyone interested in the historical culture surrounding the Russian martial arts, might find my lastest article in Combat interesting.
It is in the April 2006 issue of Combat; titled Systema Origins. Which is of part of my new column -The Russian Chronicles...
Also, another feature is now out in Inside Kung Fu June 2006 issue
which provides a brief focus on Systema's leg tactics.
