Breathing, relaxation, movement, structure: the principles of Systema combine to form an effective combat art. Your body's natural movements are trained through drills and sparring, without fixed katas or set techniques.
A battlefield tested art used by the Russian Special Forces (Spetsnaz), Systema is a complete system not just for soldiers but for anyone seeking better health, safety, and enjoyment of life.
