Re: Dousing with cold water: Who does it?

Cold water dousing is an important part of the Systema. From the decriptions I've had it is very much the same thing as the Japanese usage, in practice and explanation as well. One of my students is quite involved with studying both the breathing and the cold water dousing as done in the Systema..
