I'd say it was a mixed bag, but I do find the paramilitary 'soviet special forces hardman' spin in some of the marketing and the way they sometimes dress up in camouflage at seminars quite silly.
I know nothing about Systema, but given that most of us wander around seminars dressed as 17th century Japanese peasants, we're probably in no position to criticise.
Nazareth is right, the Gi was only ever really sporting gear for wrestling in a jacket. Hakama are something else. And I don't want to go there.
