Dealing with Armed Opponents

By Bryan Black

If you remember a few months back, I wrote an article about Dealing with Violent Confrontations, which mentioned a new Ballistic Striking DVD Series that I was asked to participate in.

That DVD series has now been officially released and I’d encourage everyone to check it out. My recommendation has nothing to do with you seeing me get my ass handed to me by Val Riazanov in the Dealing with Armed Opponents DVD and everything to do with how effective his techniques are.

Whether you’re well versed in Systema, or you know absolutely nothing about it, you won’t be disappointed in the quality and effectiveness of Val’s teaching. He has a unique way of breaking down each movement into instruction that everyone can understand.

If you haven’t read it yet, take a few minutes to peruse the Dealing with Violent Confrontations article, and send in any questions you might have for Val, we’re still taking them.

I had a great time learning from Val during the filming of this DVD series and am grateful for the opportunity to work with him.
