A martial art system for health, defence & so much more

Coronavirus temporary club closure

In line with Government & NHS recommendations to “avoid social activities”, we will be temporarily closing the club until further notice.

Systema uses simple principles to produce powerful results. These simple principles makes it extremely versatile. Systema works as a framework that you can apply to any area of your life.

We offer Systema classes in a friendly & supportive environment. Training is progressive & challenging without being overwhelming.

Systema is suitable for men & women of all ages, shapes & sizes. It will make you calmer, healthier & more confident. You will learn to deal with stress, anxiety & fear in ways that can be readily applied to everyday life.

Club Aims

  • To provide an environment where everyone can train safely & successfully.
  • To foster a spirit of kinship among club members so that everyone feels welcomed & encouraged.
  • To develop students that are honest, sincere & dedicated to exploring Systema as a means of self improvement for the good of themselves & others.

I have been studying martial arts since 2001 & was certified to teach Systema by Vladimir Vasiliev in 2014.

I also hold a 3rd Dan in Aikido & have been a BAB certified instructor since 2008.

There is a reason why Russian Martial Art is called SYSTEMA (The System). It is a complete set of concepts and training components that enhance one’s life.
