Get to Know Us
Systema is a Russian Martial System with roots in ancient Russian traditions dating back to 10 AD. It is a system for developing one’s psyche (mind-body & spirit). To accomplish this, one’s body must be free of tension, flexible, mobile and have great endurance. The spirit or psychological state has to be calm, free of agitation, fear, anger, self-pity, delusion and pride. Skills are developed for powerful, precise, economical, subtle and spontaneous movement abilities. The system is rooted in concepts that improve all systems of the body and help to stabilize the emotions and create clarity in understanding the purpose of life. Hence, it is truly an approach to improving the major aspects of one’s life. The combative training, while obvious as a way to develop self-defense skills, is also perfect for creating fear and tension scenarios so that we may learn to handle these elements in all life situations to survive and thrive. Our goal is to train in methods that allow us to avoid destroying our psyche’s or that of our training partners. There are no belts, no set uniforms or special formalities.
