What we're about

DC Systema is now know as Maryland Systema (https://marylandsystema.com).

Your first Systema class is FREE!

Our purpose is to offer the public the opportunity to study this Russian Martial Art for self-defense, wellness and personal development.

The Russian style of martial art dates back to the 10th century.

You will learn how to properly hit, fight on the ground, defend against multiple attackers and mobs, escape from locks, chokes and holds, use everyday objects as improvised weapons, defend against strikes and kicks, protect others, fight in confined spaces, and even defend against a wide variety of weapons including knives, sticks, bats, guns and chains.

You will also learn a variety of breathing techniques to help you relax and remain calm (inside and outside of our class), coupled with a wide variety of drills and mobility exercises to help you move like a much younger person!

We welcome all fitness and skill levels, even if you have zero self-defense or martial arts experience.

Classes are open to anyone 18 years or older, and there are no contracts, no uniforms and no equipment to buy.

Learn why the United States Secret Service trains in the Russian Martial Art (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oBg0m2PvRnA) of Systema.

Thanks for your interest and we look forward to training with you!
