Systema has something for anyone!
We teach teenagers, wives, daughters, older men. We teach experienced martial artists and most are amazed (please see Testimonials page). By learning the movements, the concepts, the ease of the work, you can very quickly improve your odds of coming away from most any attack safely. We use soft movement as the base. You do not have to be rough. The movement alone can save your life. I work hard to make the training suit the student, each and every one. It is very different, so prepare for surprises, but it is extremely effective. The most effective I've ever seen.
We do not spar like other martial arts and we have no forms (kata). This isn't a place for extreme cardio makeovers. This is a place to become safer every single day.
What then is Systema like? We get asked that quite a lot. Because it is so very different, it isn't much like anything I've known before. I realize this sounds like cliché but it seems to be true. Systema founders/ creator seem to have taken the very best of virtually all of the martial arts (I see elements of all the others in it) but it is boiled down to the essential ingredients. You are taught the core of movement and how the human body works at its very best. This is the stuff that many martial arts do not reveal until high level of mastery . Developing that ability to be at your best, no matter what. It's like a computer software operating system. Then the apps or applications are added "on top" of that great operating system. I find that much of learning in other systems just gets better. So if you already know stuff, you will be better at it (see the Aikido instructor's testimonial on the testimonial page) and for never-evers we show you how to quickly avoid any problems and yet remain at your full potential, in all aspects of life, especially if you are in danger or trouble or risk or just frightened. We work on reduction of fears, how to manage the self.
