One of the oldest weapons known to humans is a stick.

Learn how to prevail against the stick at every range. Systema addresses this threat in ways that no other program can.
One of the most relevant but most difficult aspects of fighting in our everyday surroundings, this workshop will prepare you against attacks in uncomfortable positions and around obstacles including walls, doorways, and in stairwells.
