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.
