Uldis Veismanis was in the Soviet Army from 1979 to 1981 and then began training in Systema with Valentin Vasiliev and Valeri Terletsky in 1981. At the time he was also taking part in inter-army sport competitions and eventually was qulified as a Dynamo Instructor (Soviet Army Sport Club which trained many of the top athletes of the Soviet Union, many of whom are recognised Olympic winners) in 1987. He was requested by the city council to help with the problems of youth crime and instituted a training program which reduced crime in the area drammatically in a very brief space of time.
