Stan Pranin over at Aikido Journal has a bit of time for this chap. They've been on the mat at Aiki Expo, so there may be a few people on here that have experienced it and are able to comment more.

George Ledyard also has/ had some Systema people training up at his place, or next door. I believe he holds it in regard too.
Peter Young, in one of the previous videos does Taiji and so do I, but that doesn't stop me from pointing out absurdities in his "art". A good martial artist should be a clinical analyser par excellence, not a wannabelieve.

BTW, back in the mid-90's, I remember Peter Young coming over from England to some of the large tournaments in Houston and Orlando.... he would take workshops from me and anyone he could get information from, and I know he took it back as "secrets" to reveal to his loyal British students. I have this hangup about people having their students on and I hate to see them taught bogus stuff, no matter what art.
