Systema is a martial art that was originated around 9-10th century A.D. in Russia. It was developed over the centuries into a formidable self-defense system. It was further refined and modernized by Soviet and now Russian military. Systema gaining recognition now all over the world.
Throughout the history of this huge country, Russia had to repel invaders from the north, south, east, and west. All attackers brought their distinct styles of combat and weaponry. The battles took place on different terrain, during freezing winters and sweltering summer heat alike, with the Russians often greatly outnumbered by the enemy forces. As a result of these factors, the Russian warriors acquired a style that combined strong spirit with extremely innovative and versatile tactics that were also practical, deadly, and effective against any type of enemy under any circumstances. The style was natural and free while having no strict rules, rigid structure or limitations (except for moral ones). All tactics were based on instinctive reactions, individual strengths and characteristics, specifically designed for fast learning.
There is a reason why Russian Martial Art is called SYSTEMA. It is a complete set of concepts and training components that enhance one’s life. In this case, acquiring the martial art skill is a way to improve the function of all physiological systems of the body and all three levels of human abilities: the physical, the psychological and the spiritual. <br> <br> The key principle of the Russian Systema is non-destruction.
