About Systema

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 movement which strengthens and restores the body, clarifies the mind, and provides a framework for healthy, safe, life-long activity
