Applying the Russian Fighting System to MMA Cage and Ring Fighting

Learn some of the Russian fighting concepts, including the scientific and psychological aspects of the fighting system. In real hand-to-hand combat you are not usually fighting a man your same size or weight. Therefore, the Russian system teaches a way to defeat someone larger or stronger than you.
