My name is Jason & I am the instructor at Systema Reading.

At Defence, Disarm & Control Seminar with Vladimir Vasiliev & Mikhail Ryabko

At Defence, Disarm & Control Seminar with Vladimir Vasiliev & Mikhail Ryabko

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.

I strive to develop my Systema by attending as many seminars as I can & have attended seminars with Mikhail Ryabko & Vladimir Vasilliev, Martin Wheeler & the Zettler twins.

I also regularly train under the excellent guidance of Matt Hill at Wiltshire Martial Arts.

I wholeheartedly recommend Jason as an Instructor, friend and person who genuinely cares about people’s progress.
