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.
