Frequently Asked Questions
I always enjoyed and benefited from attending Kaizen Taki’s workshops and guest Instructor seminars. The only complaint that I ever had, was that by the middle of the first day I was on information overload from all the detail and insights. I am SO happy that Kaizen is releasing the workshop and seminar archival films that he has collected over the years.
Certified Systema Instructor
As an original participant of Konstantin's course I am thrilled that it was captured on film. The depth of the work covered could never be fully absorbed in a single weekend, so the release of this material provides a fantastic guide to aid a life-long study.
His teachings fundamentally shifted my understanding of healing, from something that is done to me, to something I am also greatly empowered to do myself.
