Training Body and Mind

Self-confidence through self-defense training!

About Us

Qualified Instructors


Our instructors, Lyle, Robert and John  have 7 to 13 years of Systema training and are certified to teach Systema by Vladimir Vasiliev. Systema has no rank system except student and instructor. Our instructors take turns leading the class while the others assist in  individual training.  Lyle has black belts from two oriental martial arts.

Training & Philosophy


Systema is a military martial art so we train outside in the type of clothing you could be wearing should you need to defend yourself.  Unlike some martial arts where one size fits all, students adapt the Systema art to fit their body type and physical ability. Our four pillars are to Breath, Move, Relax and Maintain Structure simultaneously. Once a student learns to do these well, the training is easy.
