Looking at the value of Systema in a Karate context.

I have been looking at this for a while and I have noticed that you can create power this way.  With the little practice I have with this.  I am still trying to figure out if I can use it, or is it just going to hinder my Karate training.

I am looking to break this down in a discussion to see what others have done.  

Does anyone use the systema methods in your training?

Hi Dom

As our system is from Russia, we use something similar for some of the round house strikes.

Mostly slaps with open hand, like a ball on a chain type of strike. It works great on pads, not so well in sparring.

In close quarter grappling situation I struggled to use this method. Maybe I don't train this enough but I'm finding normal way of generating power quicker and powerful enough.

Let us know if it works for you.

Kind regards
