What does it mean to invest in yourself?

Someone invests to new business, someone - to implant new teeth, someone changes the shape of the nose or does plastic surgery, and someone gets new education.
And at first glance it's effective. But if you dig a little deeper, it becomes clear that all of these things are  secondary.
At the first place, always and everywhere for a person was, is and will be  the skill or art of survival in any situation.
In second place is own Health​.
And in third place is one very important physical quality of a person.
And this is not force and power!
And not endurance!
And not high-speed qualities!
And not even flexibility!
A person  develops it when he starts to play sports. But every sane person understands that any sport is an artificial situation, which is very far from real life.
In everyday life there will not be your coach next to you all the time, there will not be the doctor ready to give you instant first aid. We will not be in a light warm sports hall (gym) with a soft mats or with a special coating on the treadmill. There will be no special  protective equipment, special clothes and shoes, and many other things what  athletes useally use in them activity.
  And that's why if you are engaged in any sport with the hope that it will help you survive in an extreme situation, then you are in an illusion.
  Sport  is primarily a show, competition for certain honest rules. But where did you see honest rules in real life?
  And in order to be able to win in real life, you need a quality that is called... 
Yes. You correctly guessed!
This is Agility. In Russian it is called "Ловкость".
And this is exactly the quality that every person needs to develop.
This quality appears and like physical, and like  psychological.

   So if you really want to invest your resources in yourself, invest in your ability to SURVIVE, into your HEALTH and the development of your Agility.
And come here:

Question from the student about the principles of Systema Maksimtsov.

Thanks a lot for your question.
You  took part in  7 seminars Systema Maksimtsov. At each seminar I gave a minimum  3 principles of my System.
Consciously or unconsciously but you know, perhaps you understand and sometimes apply the principles of Maximitsov's System.
When you passed  the exams for the 1st level Systema colonel Maksimtsov, you answered for theoretical questions  and showed some practice with these principles:
1. Principles of motion.
2. Principles of special acrobatics.
Yes, indeed it was only initial, but very necessary knowledge and understanding.
Later you learned:
1. Principles of effective gait (walking).
2. Principles of take off   the physical balance of the enemy. We  only  touched quite a bit how  these principles work for take off  the  psychological    balance of the enemy.
3. Principles of work against an armed opponents.
   Yes, indeed, you have not studied how to effectively use these principles to improve the quality of your daily life.
After all, if you look more globally, an ordinary person from Western Europe almost never fought, does not fight now, and will never fight. Of course, if this  person does not serve in special units of the army, police, secret service and does not work as a bodyguard and security guard.
A logical question arises: "For what then for person from Western Europe study martial arts? Why they spend a huge amount of time, energy, force, finance for  something that will never   be  use in them lifes?
It was this question that I began to ask myself, when 14 years ago I started to train people from Western Europe.
When I showed them real things from real life (real street combat fighting), I very often heard that it was against the law. Even when I  simple tied up  of an opponent with the  laces of his boots or with his belt.
In my seminars many participants from Western Europe told me that it's against the law.
By law, they do not have the right to deprive the ability to move any person, even a madman, a person who has a state of drug or alcohol intoxication, or even a robber who is  rob you in this moment.
From their logic it follows that it would be better and more legitimate to cripple or kill them opponents, as for example in  Krav Maga,  than to tie up and then, if necessary to give him to Police.
Yes, of cource,   life in Eastern Europe is  much more difficult. A few years ago, in the early 90s, when the Soviet Union collapsed and there was a dawn of banditry in this territory, even a simple trip to the store could end tragically.
   And the real Systema of self-defense (Maksimtsov's System) gave many adherents of this system to preserve their health and life.
But times change.
Now at the head of each person's desire is not the usual survival, but the improvement of the quality of life, more comfort  and the achievement of their goals.
It's this knowledge, understanding and skill  accomplish this tasks and applicated  in simple and clear principles of the  Systema  colonel Maksimtsov.
 At any moment in life every adept who has passed at least 3 levels of Maksimtsov's system has tremendous opportunities to improve the quality of his life, as well as the quality of life of people close to him.  And at the same time, if necessary they can  use these  knowledge, understanding and skill to protect yourself and loved ones.
Here, especially for you Evelina, I will remind the basic principles of teaching and using the  Systema Maksimtsov.
1. The principle of trinity; in each action we must achieve three main goals. Survival; Health; Dexterity.
1.1. applicable meaning for survival;
1.2. if necessary recovery, preservation and improvement of health;1.3. the development of physical and psychological dexterity. This is the main quality of body and mind necessary for survival.
2. Clear connection of learning with the realities of life.
2.1. Training is not in the artificial conditions of the gym, but in the conditions of the city, forests, mountains, river, sea and so on.
2.2. Real weather. Snow; Rain; Ice; Dampness; The scorching sun, etc.
2.3. Real casual clothes. Everydays shoes.
There is no kimono; sports shorts, briefs, boxing gloves, protective helmet  and so on.
It should be the clothes which you use  in everyday life.
2.4. Use for training only a real weapon;  not a rubber knife, a wooden sword or cardboard nunchuck.
3. Simultaneous use and application logical thinking and creative thinking.
 With this principle of teaching of  the   Systema colonel Maksimtsov distinguishes and cardinally dominated   from all existing other Systems.
This list can be continued.
 But I will leave it for online training.
It is in online learning that you can clearly study, understand and can apply all these principles of Maximitsov's Systema (a total of 50 principles). And this  application  will be effective both for improving the quality of your daily life, and for effective self-defense, and what is still very important  - is the restoration and improvement of health. It's and  the restoration of vision, hearing, mobility in the joints, spine, heart problems, etc.
As an afterword to this answer I want to remind a very important principle: "In  all-out warfare if you did not kill your enemy, then your enemy will  kill you.
 In street fightings  the main goal is not to cripple the opponent or  kill him. The main goal is to make  from your enemy - your  friend.
 And if you do not have enough skill and experience to make friend, then you should immobilize your opponent.
 You should not allow  to him  to injury or kill you and your loved   and at the same time, as little as possible to cripple him.

Change yourself at your own will before  or it will happen with  life  force!

What role does respiration play in the Systema Maksimtsov?

Thank you for your question.
This question is often asked. I already answered it a couple of times earlier in Facebook.
But it is really sufficiently important topic and I'll try to report it again.

After all, if you look more deeply and ask yourself: "Why do I study and practice the Systema?"
There can be many answers.
- Someone calls this the way to become happy.
- Someone - in order to be confident in any life situation and find the most effective way out of this bad (dificalt) situation.
- Someone in order to find the ability to survive in the conditions of the modern city, and during the cataclysms of industrial ( like the Chernobyl nuclear accident)
political cataclysms (terrorism, war), during natural cataclysms (tornado, tsunami, earthquake, flood, etc.).

And someone decides their more needfull questions. For example, creation the family.
During the time that I have been practicing and teaching the Maksimtsov Systema (28 years ) in my lessons 19 couples have met and created good families. And what is very important they all live now. No pair has divorced.

Because these people quite consciously approached the creation of a family.
And those girls who come to study the Maksimtsov System have wisdom. They understand that finding a normal man is very difficult in their usual circle of communication.
And men who are interested, and even more who were learned in the Maksimtsov System are really workable, practicable and wise men. And it is in this circle of communication there is a great chance to find a true, courageous, strong companion of life.
So, back to the breath. 
"How can everybody use his breath more efficiently and most importantly, how can everybody improve the quality of his daily life using his breath?"

One of the main problems of modern humanity is its unconsciousness.
People use alcohol, drugs and other substances to "forget all", for a while and to get away from their problems.
In a certain sense, the same thing happens when a person reads books only for entertainment (not for learning), watches television, listens to music, plays computer games, etc. To not think about their problems.
Russian famous proverb.
"The ostrich, when afraid, hides its head in the sand, but his ass remains outside".
Therefore, in order to be more time in the state of awareness, I suggest to use our capabilities which all time with us. 
At the moment of concentration I propose you always start with a sensation of the pulse in the region of the center of gravity and after 
take attention to the breathing. 
You can realize how the center of gravity moves with the pendulum in the rhythm of breathing.
Naturally, you can focus to any other things. But for this you need to always have them with you.
Your pulse and your breath are always with you while you are alive.

If you remember the principles of motion, the second principle says: "movement without stops".
Nature itself tells us this. Even when we sleep, in our body there is a constant movement (pulse, breathing, etc.)

Thus, you have a unique opportunity to always have a certain assistant with you, which helps you to be here and now.
The fundamental aspect of Maksimtsov's System training is principles. Principles of survival;
Principles of motion;
Principles of special acrobatics (falling, rolling, somersaults);
Principles of taken off the balance of the opponents; 
Principles of shock technology; 
Principles of self-defence; 
principles of working with weapons;
principles of work against weapons;
principles of fighting against group of enemy and other ...

One of the important principles of special acrobatics (falling, rolling, somersaults) is the following principle: "All movements, when the center of gravity of a person moves upwards we must be performed the inhale.

All movements, when our center of gravity moves downwards, it is necessary to exhale. 
Again, nature itself tells us this principle. In order to lift something we need to move against the force of gravity. In this moment we need to strain the muscles and create a certain tension. During the inhale - also occurs the tension of the muscles of the chest, lungs, diaphragm, abdomen, etc.
When we freely lower down, for example the hand, we do not need to strain the muscles of the body and create tension. The same is happen when we exhales. At this moment the muscles of the chest, lungs, diaphragm, abdomen, etc. relax.

Evelina, to improve the quality of your daily life and to maximally effectively practice the Systema (I'm talking about the Maksimtsov System) I offer you a simple daily practice to increase your awareness.
For example. When you sit down or lie down on a chair, armchair or bed, relax and do it with exhalation.
And accordingly, on the contrary, when you stand up - do it with inhalation. Already only this simple practice will give you great opportunities:
1. You will perform any falls, rolls and somersaults on the hard surface as effectively as possible.
2. Use your muscles in daily life with the maximum efficiency, and therefore never feel tired.
3. Be conscious throughout the day. If you remember (foresee, avoid, act).

4. Always be energetic and vigorous, feel the joy of every day lived.

To be continued.

Sport! Is it useful? Do you need to do sports?


Sport is very bad for health.
Yes, I once again want to state this: sport, and especially any weight lifting, such as weight bars, kettlebells and other weights are very dangerous for health.

And I clearly realize that I click to myself a lot of indignation from the layman, thrill-seeker, amateur of sport and others . 
Thank you for your question. He is really very relevant. Especially for people like you and me.
When I was 20-25 years old, it seemed to me that the age 50-60 years is already a deep old age.
Now I'm 52, I clearly understand that this is the best time of life. The most important thing is that at this age there is a huge life and professional experience, and health has been ( of course, relatively) preserved. 
In youth person have a lot of free time, lots of health and absolutely no life experience. 
As for me when I was 28 years old, and I already had 21 years of experience in many martial arts I trained a lot with all kinds of weights, including kettlebells.
As a result, huge problems with the spine, elbows, knees. Before the occurrence of the fact that I could not be in a vertical position. Only lying position.
And it happened when I was only 28 years. But more about that later.

If you dig a little, not even deep, then on the surface we will see that sport is first and foremost a Big Business. 
Because after the representatives of the first echelon of modern business we all heard about, such as Bill Gates and Mark Zuckerberg.
The next cohort includes artists, musicians and ... of course sportsmen. It's those who create mass culture, cinema and sports. For example, a Russian tennis player charming and scandalous Marina Sharapova over the past year earned 29.7 million a year.
And how much do you earn in a year, an indignant and outraged reader? However, Marina Sharapova takes only 27 place in the list of the most wealthy sportsman. Statistics for 2016
It is interesting that the most in the rating of baseball players, as many as 27 people. But the first two lines were occupied by boxers, and Floyd Mayweather topped the list for the third time in four years. The American managed to earn fabulous $ 300 million.
Floyd Mayweather broke the record of Tiger Woods, who in 2008 was in the lead in the rating with 115 million. The previous achievement was exceeded almost three times!
Probably these people are doing so much more important than what you, your friends and your acquaintances. If they earn a year much more than you.

Dear reader, I apologize for the rather harsh statement, but it is in this form of information that it is better absorbed in our mind.
And when the information has hooked our mind, we begin to think a little differently. The next step is to change our actions. And only then, with these changes, our health begins to recover after sports injuries, after all sorts of falls, illnesses, unless, of course, it's not too late. Unfortunately, and very often it is simply impossible.
And I see one of my tasks in order to do all, dear reader, that it's not too late for you.
But we will continue to dig deeper and let's define: "What is the main goal of any sportsman"? 
Of course! To win the competition. Beginning from district school to the Olympic Games. And this is normal.

Famous Russian proverb: "It's bad soldier if he does not dream of being a General".

But where does health come from? Where did you see a healthy sportsmen with the level of master of sports and above (Russian graduation)? And where did you see the champion of the highest qualification who does not use special drugs that increase the energy resources of the athlete? What is the modern Olympic Games? This is a commercial war between pharmaceutical companies. Just some of the drugs have already been listed in the special directory, but others have not yet.
And that when the champion and his coach make the most of all out of the athlete's body everything that is possible; and after with the help of chemistry, everything impossible with the standards of an ordinary person. And after that he will be healthy?
Yes!!! Well!!
And what a euphoria when I lifted a heavier weight. Or did more of the uplifts.
For one day the mood is just "super". And it does not matter that after this action, at best, the overloaded joints, the "clogged" muscles ache. And in the worst case, what happens, unfortunately, very often, there are injuries and very serious. Where disrupt knee tendons (meniscus) well, just a trifle, which does not allow to move effectively and with pleasure for the rest of your life.
Well, it will be later. And now emotions are bursting with self-esteem. How I'm a law unto myself (cool) I was when I score a opponent’s goal. Or lifted a heavier weight. 
But is this the value of a person, his inner qualities and all his life in general? What is the use of the family of this lucky player who scored a goal, his surroundings, the country and all of humanity? And most to the player? A few minutes of vanity? How cool was I? And after a short time, when you start to get sick, when you give up many simple everyday joys of the usual movement, when even when you have sex you limit yourself to 1-2 positions, because you simply can’t because of the pain - you start to think: "How could I be such idiot?!"
If I could go back a few years and I would never do it, and I did not advise others. After all, it's real, well, it's very hard to feel like an invalid, unable to function when you are only 30-40 years. I'm not talking about an earlier age, when thousands of athletes mutilate themselves without thinking about the consequences. But my dear readers, life does not end either in 30 years and not in 40, or even in 50 years. The author of these lines was only about 50 years, that he is beginning to understand in this life, begins to appreciate everyday joys and more consciously treat both health and life itself.

Sorry for the long introduction to your answer.

Short answer.
1. It is necessary to do such exercises, when the distance between the joints increased, and especially between the vertebrae.
And try to avoid such exercises when compression occurs.
2. Always use the forces of nature. Gravity, the moment of inertia, the force of elasticity.
3. And of course, all this should happen at maximum relaxation.

I hope this was useful for you.
Questions are welcome.

Alexander Maksimtsov

Why is it necessary to move very slowly at the elementary stage of training?

Fragment from correspondence with online student:
Thank you for your video.

I'm glad that you have a mutual understanding with your wife. 
Express my deep respect for your wife, that she agreed to become your partner for training the release from grabs. I hope she will more deeply understand what you are doing.
A mutual understandingis is very important in the life of every family. Say to her hello from me and from my wife.
And be sure to thank her from us.
Unfortunately it's very rare when wives help and understand their husbands. Only wise women are capable of this.

As for your homework. You do it very quickly and abruptly. Hence it appears 3 big problems.

1st problem. 
A quick and clumsy ( awkward ) movements can be done by any person completely unprepared. But slow and maximum effective movement, only a person who can really control his mind and body.
Pay attention. Speed at the 1st level (elementary) of program Maksimtsov's Systema - no more than 10% of combat speed. And then better than slower.

To understand this, try to do the following:
Measure the distance 3 meters and take a stopwatch to control the pinpoint time.
Then start walking with your usual gait these 3 meters, but very slowly. 1 meter for 1 minute.
Particular attention: 
the length of your steps should be exactly the same as in life (with your real gait).
You can see that even although you can walk, it will be difficult for you to complete this task. As well as any other person.

Slowly moving is much difficult than fast. So, when you perform any movements as slowly as possible, you train and increase the level of controllability of your body and mind.
Chinese qigong, Russian folk dances, Russian ballet school and some other methods of enhancing the ability to control the mind and body work in the same way.

2nd problem.

Your partners, especially your wife, will not want to train with you. She will receive only unpleasant (painful) sensations.
Ideal work - when your opponent does what you need, and while enjoying it. At the same time your partner does not want to do this, but he must do it without his desire.
Unfortunately, in almost all martial arts, everyone is trying to do everything quickly.
This is a big error (wrong belief).
Speed you should increases with increasing your skill step by step, from level to level. Already at the 2nd level, the speed is 20% of the combat speed.

3rd problem.

The higher the speed and the rougher your work, the more possibilities of injury to both your partner and yourself.
Do you need it?
And your partner need it?
Come back to the beginning of online education.…/program-1st-level-elementary-basic…
The first lesson: "Three laws of survival".
1. To foresee.
2. To avoid.
3. To act.
So you should foresee the probability of injury to your partner and yourself. And avoid this.

It's possible that in your life you will never really fight, but getting serious injuries to training can be very easy.
Therefore, I will remind you again of this wisdom:
A student said to his master: “Why you teach me fighting, but we talk about peace.
How do you reconcile the two?” The Master replied:
“It is better to be a warrior in a garden than to be a gardener in a war.”

So I propose you do the same video of your homework, but speed is as slow as you can. Do not forget about the principles of the movement. And special attention here must be established to the motion without stopping (continuing motion).

If something is not clear please ask me.
I'm looking forward to hear from you soon.
Alexander Maksimtsov

Slow speed gives rise to rapid movement.
A super slow speed gives rise to an excessively rapid movement.

How we can use the base movement "figure eight" in everyday life in psychological plan?

   In psychological plan we must clearly understand our strategy and tactics.
And one of the fundamental factors of our strategy is constantly to see in the around world  our friends.
And even if something it seems to us the enemies - we need to see and understand  how to do from  this enemy to our friends.
The figure "Eight"  allows us to constantly see the good even in bad.
All around us, trees, walls, roads, i.e. all objects can be our friends and our enemies.
And one of the main stages of preparation of the high level of Master is the ability to make from your enemy to your friend.
And one of the preliminary steps in this preparation is the ability to make friends from all your surroundings.
Yes, if the untrained person falls on the road or against a wall - it will be hurt. But you can be trained to do this without harm. To do this you need to understand that they are your friends. This ability not only preserves your health and your life, but also increases your chances to achieve what you really want.
Once you will start to apply this skill, you can  realize more of your potential  and  you understand  that everything is possible for you!
Only one question for you with regarding  to the  "figure eight".
How can you use this knowledge to improve your business?
Write please one example.
If there will be some problems with answer you will write me and we will  find the answers together.
After your answers I'll start to send you video material " figure eight".
 Do every day what you like to do.
Live where you want to live.
Communicate with people with whom you really want to communicate.
Alexander Maksimtsov

Good luck to achieving your goals.

Why base movement  of Systema Maksimtsov has name  “figure eight"?

           The figure "eight" is a symbol of  "infinity”. Understanding the infinite movement is one of the fundamental concepts of motion and accordingly of Systema Alexander Maksimtsov.
 As long as the human heart is working, and the person breathes - he lives. The same principle we use it and in  the extreme situation, and during the fighting, and in everyday life.
Also in psychological plan we need to move without interruption to reach a specific goal. This also applies to combat situations, and life in general.
Our life is movement, even when we sleep. Our hearts do not stop for a minute, the blood moves through the arteries, veins and capillaries without stops. The entire respiratory system also operates non-stop. All the internal organs perform their functions without interruption.
To stop - it is means to die.
Both literally and figuratively.
 Do every day what you like to do.
Live where you want to live.
Communicate with people with whom you really want to communicate.

Alexander Maksimtsov
Good luck to achieving your goals.

How to be and remain always bright, cheerful and energetic?
10 laws of energy.

And it does not matter whether you know about them or not. These are the laws of nature, which means they act to you in any case. Just like gravity acts on an apple falling down.

1st Law of energy:
 Knowledge has the power of influence
This means that all information is capable of both:
1. Rraising your mood that is increasing your energy;
2. And spoiling it; that is reducing your strength.
Filter all information that comes to you. Take away or reduce the channels as it posible through which negative information comes to you. Increase the positive channels.

2nd law of energy:  
 Life is the movement of energy.
Thus to ensure that your energy is at the proper level, you must not allow stagnation in your body, both physical and mental. Move more, study new, constantly develop, set goals and achieve them.

3rd law of energy: 
 Energy comes to a person from outside.
Energy comes to man from the outer space through various channels - food, air, water, senses or perceptions. If some channel is poorly functioning for one reason or another, then the energy goes badly. 
Or does not flow at all. So the energy of a person is reduced, leading to a bad mood  and as a consequence, to a low quality of life.

4th law of energy: 
To get energy - a person must be in a state of balance.
For a free flow of energy a person must be in a state of balance  of the body, mind, behavior and external environment.

5th law of energy:
 The level of energy is increased by the relationship between external events and your internal state.
          To increase the level of your energy try all time to monitor the relationship between external events and your state. All people are different, which means that one person under the influence of this event can feel comfortable. 
But  the other it will cause discomfort, and hence, the outflow of energy.
It is easy to understand by the example of heat. There are people who can easily sit in the sauna for at least half an hour and  while adding steam. 
And there are those who become can't sit in sauna  in just 5 minutes.
Keep track of the reactions of your own organism and  the most important,  try step by step to remove those events that negatively affect your well-being and comfort.
The state of awareness will become the norm for you, and accordingly you will begin to manage your own  level of energy.

6th law of energy:
 Energy depends from your thoughts and focus.
Where is your focus, your thought and attention, very seriously affects your energy. If most of your time you are  worring, fear something, then the level of your energy will be extremely low.
     And, the more attention is there, the more energy you lose. The whole paradox is that negative thoughts discharge you, and the positive ones are charged on the contrary. So, for example, to increase the level of vitality, you should concentrate to the source of energy, and not to the problem.  We must not remove fatigue, but we should look for the sources of energy exactly for us and increase our energy. And after that  the fatigue will pass.
Pay attention to what you want to get and how to achieve it.
Leave empty feelings to others.

7th law of enegy:
 Energy depends from the quality of food
The higher the quality of your digestion, the less energy you spend on this process, less is formed by toxins and waste products, and more useful substances you get. Some products are digested easily, others require high energy costs, which means that their absorption leads to fatigue and low activity.
Observe for the quality of food and digestion. Keep track of your condition after eating. If you are sleepy or you feel a breakdown, then you need to change something in your diet.

8th law of enegy:
 Natural rhythms and the environment directly affect to  your energy
There are special natural rhythms. The activities in accordance with them increase energy and efficiency. With a violation - overall efficiency decreases and fatigue increases. The environment - people, nature, cities  directly affect to the state of the energy of the body.
Remember this and choose people to communicate with those who are ready to share positive energy with you.
      And avoid contact with vampires (with people after communicating with whom comes the downgrade of force and energy).
       Look for a place to stay, where you feel cheerful and invigorated.
Try to do those things and deeds from the fulfillment of which there comes a pleasant feeling of satisfaction and calm joy.

9th law of enegy:
Five senses of our energy channels.
The five senses, such as: eyesight, hearing, taste, smell and touch are energy channels through which energy can both come and go away.
And this is your choice.
To receive energy with the help of these feelings or to lose.
The simplest example.
You listen to certain music and feel that your mood and vitality has increased. This is your melody or song.
Periodically, when you feel that you are not in tonus, listen to this melody.
When you are able to load all your senses at the same time with sensations that give you energy - you will able to receive the energy of the highest test.
Someone calls it happiness, someone is nirvana, somebody is a divine grace.
And vice versa.
When all five senses of a person are affected by a negative influence, it is at this time a person has deep depression and sometimes - even suicidal intentions.
When you understand these things and use them in everyday life, you are able to manage (full control) your own state and help other people to quickly get out of any negative.

10th law of energy:
 When you develop yourself, you increase your energy
Your life belongs only to you.
Your personal development should be a priority. You should not serve other people, and even more so, external objects.
At a certain stage of life you can help your children, parents and other close people, but only if they really can not live without your help.
If you feel that you are losing energy and force when you serve these people, you need to change your attitude to this serve.
For example; give for rent yourself  for this time.
But one condition is always necessary. You should clearly see the end date of your service to other person. If you do not see this date, it will lead you to depression, exhaustion and illness.

To be continued.
Questions are welcome.

What should the width of the feet be at the most effective standing position?

Fragment from the correspondence of online education:

Here it is necessary to clearly understand that we are not striving for a rigid position (rigid structure) of our body , and even more so, fixed support (balance).
Our task is always to be on the move. And it is natural that the position of "feet on the width of the shoulders" is better than, the position of "feet together."
But if the legs are wider than the shoulders, it is more difficult for a person to "explode" in order to do the fastest movement possible. For example, leave the line of attack or for attack.
An experienced master or an employee of a special service can, according to the movement of a person, determine an excellent and correspondingly dangerous fighter (opponent).
So sometimes it is necessary "to play the role of a clumsy and person who bad manages his body." In this case, you must create visibility, and vice versa, specifically violate all the principles of motion, but at the same time use them.
For this we use the "internal pendulum".
And also, so as not to attract the attention of other people. After all, if you use an "external pendulum", then you will be different from all people when you are closely watched. Because almost all people are immobile, they "freeze". And as a rule, in unnatural positions. They are not ready to "explode".

If something is not clear please ask me.

The master is not the one who runs fast, but one who runs out early.

What does mean the phrase : "Do every day what you like to do?"

These is very important psychological topic.

Doing what you want does not mean doing something at times.
This means that one of the most important task (mission) in life is to find your own business (predestination) and do it all your life.
 It includes:
1. You like to do it.
2. You can do this always, even when you are sick, tired and have no energy.
3. After you do this, you feel increase of  energy in your body.
4. You can earn with this business (predestination) and you can do it (for exemple to  help to achieve something) for others people for free, if you see that this person really wants to achieve it and he has not possibiletes to pay. Because you really love to do it.
5. You see and  understand that when you do this business, you improve the quality of your life. You become healthier, more cheerful, you acquire useful knowledge, understanding and skills.
6. Subsequently, when you already have certain knowledge, understanding and skills in a certain area (for example Systema Maksimtsov, or restore of your health,  or something else what you can do perfectly) you can share this with your loved ones (family, children, friends, colleagues, etc.). And you do it with pleasure.
The phrase: " Do every day  what you like to do" does not mean that you should do things that contradict the above six points. Look above.
Such as to drink a lot of  alcohol,  use drugs, spend whole days playing computer games, etc.
What will happen to these people? We can see and understand this perfectly.
Once again, I want to emphasize that if shooting matches all 6 parameters (see above), then of course you should continue to attend the shooting range. And not once a week, but at least 3 times a week.
And to achieve any positive results, you must train in a shooting place  seven times a week. And this will tell you any professional of shooting. If he tells you that if you will  shoot once a week and you  will shoot perfectly, he just deceives you.
At the conclusion of this topic, it is very difficult for a person to realize himself to be happy, if he does not live according to his mission (predestination).
Probably it sounds very pompous (grandiloquently), but as they say in one famous Russian proverb: "We can not throw away words from a song".
It remains to add that  Maksimtsov's Systema and Systema generally is not the goal. Systema is  only the means to find this  mission and achive something what you want in life.
 Starting to control your own body, mind, surrounding objects, environment, surrounding people with mandatory positive interaction, we find our predestination and manage our life.
And I understand you well.
It's really hard for you now to concentrate for  doing your homework. And this is normal.
Because Your body wants one.  But useally Your mind wants another.
And you try to connect them. Because it's impossible to really perform a homework perfectly, if you can not connect them.
This is one of the intermediate global tasks, to connect your body and your mind.
But if you can still go through the 1st level you will see how you really will come to a new level of self-awareness and control it.
Indeed, level 1st is the most difficult for every person.
It  is basic and he sets a new level of thinking and a new level of action.
Every next level is much easier. When there is a solid base (foundation), then you can build any structure.
If something is not clear please ask me.

The way will be mastered by the going.

What is big goal when you achieve for shooting?

Fragment from the feedback of online education about our resources.

Now you wrote the most common misconception of modern people. You're training to shoot and you do not clearly understand why you need it.
But you are wasting (lost) your life resources, especially the time that will never come back. And if a young man does so, it is normal and justified.
The young man has no life experience, and he thinks that his time is not limited and he can lost it anywhere. He is engaged in various nonsense, and very often he destroit his body and mind.
And when life's problems arise, especially with health and safety, a person begins to think about and look for ways to restore health and, if possible, to protect their lives.
You wrote me that you do not have enough time and energy to do your homework, but at that time you lost it for what?

What is big goal when you achive for shooting? Ask yourself: "Why am I doing this?"
If you find a clear answer that shooting will improve your life, your health, your worldview or improve the life of your family, that's fine. You should continue to do it. If not, then why will you do it?
We must clearly understand that our time and energy are limited. And the older you are, the more serious you should think about it.
I'm sorry if I'm touching something with your inner feelings and your "I".
But this is my work.
If I keep stroking and saying that you are the best and that you are doing everything right, I will deceive both you and myself.
This will be another illusion and deception.
I hope that you understand me what I'm talking about.
Remember please 3 Laws of survival. 
You studed it not only for quality assessment of your knowledge, but for use it in every day life.
If something is not clear please ask me.

I'm looking forward to hear from you soon.

What kind of weapons to buy for self-defense?

I would like to write for you a few my observations of a man who had weapons all his life. 
Since I was 18, I left to serve in the army and before entering the police pension and for many years my gun was always with me. 
And it was always a big problem. After several years of service, I did not want to have a weapon and always carry it with me.
 But I must do it for my service.
For 25 years of service, I had many opportunities to apply it in the legal field (lawfully), but I never used it against a person. 
Because I understood that any application entails negative consequences and  in the service, and in relations with relatives of the wounded or killed, and the killer's own feelings.

I can list a lot of all the possible inconveniences and risks that are created by the desire to have a weapon and use it.
1. Always  to hide it from other people and especially from your family.
 If your child accidentally finds your gun and decides to play with it while you are dining, then can happen a great misfortune. 
Look 1st law of survival.
2.  You must always hide your gun at home in a special safe and of course at the necessary moment,
 you will not find the keys to the safe or you will  forget the cipher.
3.You have problems when you go into the airport,some  restaurants, pool, bath, on the beach, etc.
4. You must periodically clean, lubricate your weapon.
5. You must pay a special license for the storage of weapons and undergo a medical examination.
6. You must visite to the shooting gallery and shoot 2-3 times in week. And it's not enough to be able to use weapons professionally, you have to do it every day for several hours.
 And this is a great illusion that in a real combat situation you will shoot precisely from such a position of the body, like in shooting place.
You will be in such clothes like in shooting place, you will aim long time like in shooting place. 
And you should remember that your opponent  will shoot to you in  this time...

Therefore, when  I am asked my students what kind of weapons to buy for self-defense, there may be a gas pistol or a gun with rubber bullets, or a knife, or a gas cylinder, or an electric shock, etc?
I always answer - nothing. For several reasons.
1. If a person decides to entrust his fate, health and life to a piece of inanimate metal, then he puts himself below this metal, which has no intelligence. And when a person lost  his time, energy, force and finances in order to learn how to shoot, I really pity his resources (time, energy, force and finances) and his misunderstanding.
The ability to shoot perfect  into people takes place only in two cases.
1.1. You are a professional soldier and you earn a living by this.
1.2. You are a professional killer.
More than 99,9% of cases in life  this skill you are not useful.
If you expect (think) that in some extreme situation you can protect yourself, then this is a delusion (great Illusion).
1. As a rule, at the right time the weapon will not be with you.
1.1. You will forget it.
1.2. You can not get it from the holster, pocket or other place.
1.3. If you get it, you forget to remove it from the protective device.
1.4. If you remove even from the protective device, your hands will be very stressed, and you can not do a good shot (for example, knock the hat off your opponent's head and scare him).
1.5. However, in this stressful situation, you must think about not getting into other people who may be in the field of your shooting.
 And it can be your family, friends, colleagues, etc.
1.6. Once you have pulled your weapon, at this point your opponent has every right to shoot you for defeat. And he will do it because of fear and as a rule, he will shoot the body and head, where the most dangerous for life. Because to aim and professionally shoot in the hand or foot, can only a professional shooter who has a lot of experience to shoot a living persons.
My question to you. Do you know many people who have such experience?
Ask your instructor how many people he killed? And how many people he wounded? 
And how many times he only knocked off  hat of his opponent and scared the enemy?

Thus, based on the above information and my rich experience of  communication with weapons, I recommend to all my students use their own resources (time, energy, force, finances)  for to develop their own body and mind; 

And then you  never  go into  a situation where you will need to shoot another persons.
But  if all the same  you will  not foresee and you will have  not avoid such a situation, 
you can find the most effective way to solve the way out of a dangerous situation.
Of course, provided that if you will develop yourself in this direction, think about it and to act accordingly.

I apologize if may be,  I touched of your deep feelings.
In the end it's your choice where to invest your resources and what result you want to get.
And your choice is the most right for you.
