This dynamic DVD is a recording of the first Bujinkan meets Systema seminar with Sveneric Bogsater and Jan Bloem. In this very dynamic seminar both shared valuable knowledge to all practitioners. A lot of martial arts have similar movements, although the philosophy for the movement can differ. This seminar explores the principles of Bujinkan and Systema. The topic of this seminar was Kihon happo. The most important lesson was not to get stuck in the form. Use the principles to move and survive. Sveneric showed all eight forms of the Kihon happo as they have evolved from the basics to today. Based on the principles of the Kihon happo Jan Bloem showed the Systema approach and gave some in-depth explanations about how to efficiently use your body. Both the Bujinkan and Systema use a lot of the same principles in movement and are both focused on survival. The differences in approach are cultural. A common similarity is that both systems seem to be evolving the same. Systema is used by the elite teams of the Spetsnaz which can be compared with the ninja. They were ancient Japanese Special Forces. Both systems also address the mental part of training and have numerous mind and body improving exercises.
