About these classes: Systema, Russian Martial Art is a self-defense used by the Russian Special Forces. It focuses on injury prevention, energy redirection, take downs, strikes, ground defenses, and weapon disarms. This seminar is for people of all backgrounds.
Systema believes that the martial art should conform to the student. That's why training in Systema helps heighten awareness, increase knowledge of body dynamics and emphasizes natural movement over choreographed fighting sequences. Classes combine Russian health exercises for emotional and physical fitness with defensive maneuvers that teach the body to spontaneously discover the solutions to a variety of attacks that occur in the modern world.
The key principle of the Russian System is non-destruction. The goal is to make sure that your training and your attitudes do no damage to the body or to the psyche of you and your partners. The System is designed to create, build and strengthen your body, your psyche, your family and your country. Training in the System allows you to gain the true strength of spirit that comes from humility and clarity in seeing the purpose of our life.
