Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
Thanks to everyone who has attended classes and workshops this year as well as bought the DVDs / digital downloads. Your support and hard work is much appreciated!
It's been a great year for training, personally I've got to train with Martin once and Vladimir twice this year, in Hamburg (thanks Jorg!) and at the great weekend in London organised by Systema GB - thanks guys!
There's been some great progress in training this year, reflected in the fact that a number of the lads are now Instructors / Instructors-in-training - well done chaps!
It's also been great to see the new level of Instructors coming through, guys such as Jamie, Garreth and Mark, the Celtic Contingent as well as hook up again with "old faces" such as Sam and Dima :-)
If there has been one over-riding theme in the training this year it has been "natural movement". So it is only fitting that the last blog of 2012 should be on my views / understanding of what that phrase means
Next year looks equally exciting - Valentin Talanov in London, Martin Wheeler in Dublin and all the usual fun and games in-between. We also have a very interesting and different Summer Camp in the pipeline, so watch this space.
Thank you all once again and thanks as always to Vladimir and Mikhail for their continued guidance, inspiration and support
