Swift. Practical. Sustainable.
The art of Systema is the ultimate survival system for the modern age. It is a highly adaptable and effective system for the real world of hard objects and hard choices. It has been used by top body guards and elite special operations, and a brief history is given here. Though Systema has ancient Slavic origins, the fundamental principles of Freedom of Movement and healthy living are universal.
Today, the training has evolved into a system that primarily helps students rediscover the freedom and natural fluidity of their bodies, which is often lost after childhood. With this freedom comes more control, more choices, greater awareness, and better decision-making under duress.
In a very short period of time with us, you will be able to:
Get real confidence and self control
Notice and eliminate all of your tensions
Understand and work the tension in others
Increase awareness of yourself and others
Utilize our comprehensive breath work
Increase your mobility and resilience
Learn how to completely avoid injuries
Work around existing injuries and heal them
Increase tolerance to pain and fear
Learn and apply critical self-defense methods
The work is taught by high-level internationally-certified instructors, in a very supportive and nurturing community, and is based on relaxed intuitive movement, focused breath training, and repeatable methods for prevailing in countless difficult situations.
A high degree of importance is placed on improvisational skill since it is unlikely that pre-programming or memorization can fully prepare a person for the unpredictability of real world situations. We therefore focus on refining our instincts and better connecting with our inner state so that we are less encumbered by our physical or emotional limitations. Essentially, you grow to know yourself completely in any context.
Our comprehensive breathing methodology is found in no other system, and it is used to increase overall survivability, through improved situational awareness, recovery, preparation, self-diagnosis, and fear mitigation.
There is nothing to memorize; there are no uniforms; and there are no ranks. There is just the work.
In the end, our way of training should protect us today as well as the people we will become many years from now. Systema provides that path.
Join us today and see how our advanced training methods will transform the way you move, think, and feel, on and off the mat.
