Systema is a combat style based on ancient Slavic fighting methods which were collected and codified by the Russian Soviet special forces. It is a devastatingly effective and versatile combative program that can easily stand alone, or augment your existing practice. The overarching focus is on responding to a threat spontaneously with natural, instinctive normal human movement which strengthens and restores the body, instead of leaving you fatigued.
