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.
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.
There's much to see here. So, take your time, look around, and learn all there is to know about us. These pictures are action shots taken at our classes. Visit our Facebook link to see videos of our training.
Systema is for self defense . We teach principals that you adapt to your body type and ability instead of techniques. Throughout the instruction there is an emphasis learning to relax and breath to reduce the tension one feels when threatened. In addition to hand to hand, we train in the use and defense against weapons such as knives, clubs and chains. There are no tests, belts or rank, Systema students tend to be internally motivated to learn defense against unarmed and armed aggressors.
Classes run for two hours. We teach the student the principals of Systema, to breath, move, relax and maintain the structure, for self defense and also how to apply these principals in daily life. Discount for multiple members of same family.
$30 for two hour session
By appointment, Lyle will teach a self defense class that addresses your needs, fears and concerns. Discounts available for three or more in a class.
We train in Reid Park at the double Ramada #32, behind Hy Corbet Field. As Systema is a military martial art we train outside year round regardless of the temperature. See Google Maps: Reid Park, Ramada 32.
Systema is for self defense, therefore we train in the type of clothing you wear every day. If you are ever attacked, you will not have time to pull off your shoes and put on a martial arts uniform. As a practical matter though, the clothing should be loose fitting and something you don't mind getting dirty. You can order Official Systema T-shirts through your instructor.
