I'd like to thank Vladimir Zaikovsky for what was a few amazing days of training during the "Situational Awareness and Precision" seminar and special classes. It's always difficult to put into words to explain what Vladimir shares because as he says "words don't explain the thing" but I'll do my best.
I think most people, including myself, went into the seminar with an idea that we would be learning how to precisely analyze a situation and make the best choice to live. What Vladimir gave was much deeper than this, he actually helped us to access our own intuitive perception to not analyze but feel a situation. This is something that all human beings have but either don't listen to or gradually bury due to too much tension and stress.
We did this by increasing our awareness inside our body and then expanded this awareness outside, so we can feel more of what is going on in people, for example a person's intention, and the surroundings. We covered so much but this interplay between internal and external awareness is what we became re-accustomed with over what were a very quick few days. And once you feel it, this change in perception becomes very clear and accessible. It's something you can switch on and off when needed.
Something that Vladimir said really made an impression on me and it was that "your perception can be bigger than your body." We can sometimes get so locked into our bodies, feelings and thoughts that we forget that there is a whole world out there that we are kind of unconnected with. From a self-protection perspective, this can be fatal because we can't feel a threat coming or simply that a certain place does n't feel comfortable.
What Vladimir shared with us helped us to expand our perception, so that we can feel a change in a person who decides to attack you and simply absorb more information from our surroundings. Vladimir always approaches subjects in a unique and profound way that always opens our eyes to a new way of doing things that before were not imaginable. I can't recommend Vladimir enough. Anybody who gets a chance should go and train with him. I'm looking forward to another great experience with Sergey Ozereliev and Vladimir Zaikovsky in Osaka this weekend. I'm sure it'll be another great one!
