Conversation with my good friend - and fellow Instructor at NC SYSTEMA - Jeff Sodeman. An accomplished martial artist in his own right, Jeff has trained Aikido and Systema for over 25 years, founded the San Diego Systema and Aikikai (California), and ran it for over a decade before moving to North Carolina in 2015.
Here, we get into:
- how Jeff came to martial arts...via rock climbing
- parallels between climbing, combat, and conditioning
- exhaustion, efficiency, and psychological endurance
- differences and similarities between Aikido and Systema
