Systema San Francisco is a Russian Martial Arts Group - "Systema" open to all who wish to share, learn and practice simple, realistic, practical techniques and mind set for the purpose of self defense and personal safety. Anyone who wishes to join us is welcome. No prior martial arts training is needed. All of us have the right to feel safe and to avoid harm from anyone who seeks to control or injure us. Anyone who would like to join us to practice and share is most welcome. Sparring and competition are great, but in an life or death situation, preserving life and minimizing injury require a different skill set and state of mind. If you have been assaulted, or have been in a physical confrontation - and there is a one in three chance that you have - or wish to join a group of people who seek to share knowledge, and practice personal safety mind set and techniques, please join us - all are welcome! Learning self defense doesn't have to be a fearful or physically intense experience. Get physical, get healthy and learn to stay safe. With the gift of Life, comes the Right to defend it.
