Systema: Taking Strikes

This event will explore Systema's approach to taking strikes. We will cover the basics of:

  • Preparing the body for strikes
  • Identifying areas of tension
  • Proper breathing to deal with physical and psychological stress
  • Taking strikes to the body and head
  • Proper movement and structure for protection and function
  • Cleansing the body of strikes

The work will be slow and careful, it will be uncomfortable but when done correctly is not damaging. Please show up a few minutes early to sign a waiver. Wear comfortable clothes, and eat lightly before the class.

    Hey Jeff, I've never done systema before. Would this be a good first class/basis for systema?
