I'm Adrien, from France !
I've practiced a little bit of Ryakbo-Vassiliev Systema during three years, unfortunately it was mostly solo work even though I still attended a few classes here and there in the excellent school my town has.
Since December 2016, I've been learning Xinyi Liuhe Quan from a very good martial artist who lives in Switzerland, even though I can't see him very often unfortunately (so it's also a lot of solo work). I'm still at the beginning stage, focusing on practising daily and adding more practice volume (and quality) step by step.
I like the pragmatic and seemingly simple nature of Xinyi Liuhe Quan (at my stage, nothing about chi or wahtever, it's all about structure, grounding, listening, relaxing, etc. ).
I hope I'll be able to practice this art in depth, and eventually become a good amateur.
I spend most of my days at the conservatory studying music (piano and composition), which is partly why I'm interested in more supple approaches, which work in depth on the body without hardening it, without making it lose sensitivity or functionality.
I'm also very interested in pure body work like Feldenkrais, and I'd like to get a training as deep as I can afford in one of these methods (for now just dicovering and working for myself).
