Systema Classes

A complete system for health and a martial art for self defence.

Systema classes will:

  • Improve your health
  • Increase your mobility & flexibility
  • Reduce stress & release unnecessary tension
  • Build true self-awareness & confidence
  • Lessen the effects of time

…& so much more. Systema is a martial art with a lot to offer.

Systema training encourages creativity. Instead of learning responses to predefined attacks, drills are used to develop your abilities. So you learn to remain calm & relaxed in challenging situations. This helps you to see more clearly, move more freely & make better decisions. Systema teaches you how to work in the momentSystema is a versatile martial art.

Combat, like life, is unpredictable. Systema training is based on drills that teach you to cope. This is something that is as valuable when facing the stresses of daily life as it is in combat. Systema is a martial art that readily transfers into everyday life.

The two elements of our Systema classes


The first elements is focused on health & wellbeing training, which is a key component of Systema martial arts training. It includes breath work, mobility exercises, strength & conditioning training.

The drills that are presented give you a chance to understand yourself better & to work on the four ‘pillars’ of Systema:

  • Breath
  • Relaxation
  • Movement
  • Structure

These four principles are the foundation of The Russian Martial Art of Systema. While training, we practice using these principles in drills that aim to challenge & stretching students without overwhelming them.

Visit the Systema Health Class page for details of our Wednesday night classes.


The second element is the combat element of Systema. We work with punches, kicks, grappling, weapons & multiple attackers to help you develop ways of improving your responses in a variety of situations.

The drills help you to face your limitations, to know yourself better which, in turn, cultivates humility. Little by little, we stretch the boundaries of your limitations so that you can improve your skill level & become more capable.
