The Russian martial art, Systema, is a free-form approach to self-defence and health that is practical and highly effective. A principal based martial art,Systema is a complete method of training that develops in its practitioners a calm state of mind, unfettered movement and a strong spirit. Unique in its approach to combatives,Systema breaks away from the conventional memorization of techniques, fixed patterns and forms. Instead, practitioners learn through doing – instructors are there not to dictate the students, but to guide them along the path of self-discovery which enables them to find their own personal approach to different situations. Systema hand-to-hand training is, by virtue of its principles and methods, highly practical and yet deeply personal. The training environment stimulates the students to discover exciting new perspectives and endless possibilities in the study of movement and self-defence. Eventually,students will learn to master their own bodies and minds and have complete control of any empty-handed or armed attack – using natural and instinctive movements that are dynamic, tension-free and full of power.
