Are they the clips where he rolls in the "systems" way, all flowy with a compliant opponent, then rolls with mma/bjj guys and just looks like "normal" mma./bjj?

love to see the systema guys in some sanctioned events or even live sparring .they wont have the chance and angles to get off one of those ballistic strikes.

However, I will say that what I've seen in Systema, those guys actually might be able to launch quicker just because they don't seem to be rotating as much from the lower body as CMA guy might. Distance to target and all that jazz. Without the lower body addition you can get the explosiveness but I'm not sure how much weight you could add to it. Speed vs Power...depends on the situation and what you need at the time.
Hrmmm...ideas to play with.
Say Rob...how does Systema usually set up a strike like that?

This is a method of Systema striking rather than the method. There's a lot of other things involved but there is only so much you can put in a clip at a time...
