According to legends that survive by beating angry bear, the young man turned into a werewolf warrior, as if absorbing the spirit of the dead animal. His neck was hung an amulet of bear claws. This tradition of the warrior strengthens endurance, giving it a strong psychological support in any situation. In specific merrymaking childhood passed, laying a few more than just the ability, but what sometimes can not learn — fearlessness.

Campaigns themselves Slavs — a rare phenomenon. But the aggression from the side — almost constant. And historically, that Russ was always forced to fight in the minority. Professional army as numerous and should not be.
Therefore, the squad was forced to use anyone, even a slight advantage. The soldiers, from childhood growing up in these parts, are used to fight in poor visibility conditions and confined spaces — for example, in a dense forest. This and battle tactics that enable you to battle alone, even in the full environment.
In order to impose its numerically superior enemy, it was necessary to possess a special skill of the attacking troops, built on a high physical activity.

Warrior, who fought alone — is the highest degree of military skill, which has its historical name — borserk (later the name of the lord, a strong warrior). For borserka not matter how many enemies to bring down their swords. As a rule, he did not hold the shield, and preferred to take his other hand and weapon.
As a wolf, catching its prey, borserk pounced on the enemy, causing them to feel like a victim angry warrior. Dressed in skins, he introduced himself in a violent state, causing a wild roar, from which even the enemy ceased to obey the horse riders.
From a state of rage borserk sometimes could not get out, and after the battle was over. Sometimes a bucket of cold water removes it from shock. But at times it had to be kept on a chain, because the slightest irritation caused an explosion of rage, and it became dangerous to tribesmen.
Now it is necessary to dip into the primordial, in the early days of military cults.
Perhaps those who have always had a weapon — the hunters — and were the ancestors of professional soldiers. When there was a need to protect themselves from prying neighbors, weapons for hunting, drawn against the aggressor. At this time, there is a weapon designed for war: the sword and shield. Sword cost much, and allow yourself to have it could only noble warrior.
The system of military education was based on hunting cults and absorbed archaism of the established culture.

The greater the mass and acceleration, the greater the impact. With various mechanics of motion and implemented blow. In order for it to be energy-intensive, when the element is a momentum gained after the previous application for the formation of base hit next. Start building or hand position at impact — this is Reality — one side of Triglav. Right — this strike action, or more precisely — the time of the application — the middle of Triglav. Finally — a way out of slow blow — Nav, the opposite side Triglav. She is also a reality for the next stroke. Circle. Understanding how the expansion of the shock allows you to build a variety of fighting techniques and to correct any punch.

In order to hold military equipment at a high level, you need to your actions in battle led military spirit, driven Triglav: Can — should — I want to. Where is the "I can" — a reflection of your level of technical training. "I want" — expresses the value of the desire to achieve the goal. A "must" — the need to face the action. Of doubt — and the victory will turn away from you. The enemy greedily assign it to yourself.
These are briefly laws and beliefs, which in ancient times was based military life of our ancestors.
