Self Defense Classes
Age: 15 to 80
Background Information: The Russian Martial Art, or "Systema," is an effective and versatile style of of self-defense that can be utilized by people of all ages for personal protection. It is inherently different from other styles, as the principles taught in Systema are very practical and applicable to many various situations. In this style, the student learns the correct survival mindset and the necessary techniques against all kinds of opponents, with and without additional weapons (knives, guns, etc.)
Important Concepts: Sensitivity and response potential are the most important founding concepts of this style. The students must first learn to relax and face their opponents without fear or tension, freeing the body for more fluid and efficient movements. Economy of motion is also of vital importance to Systema students. Less movement allows for less energy wasted, and faster reaction time. Fine motor skills are an important part of training.
Our goals: To develop self-confidence and understanding of the style in students. To give the students the ability to perform under pressure and effectively counter all armed and unarmed opponents, survive against multiple attackers, among others. To develop the ability to mentally adapt to a variety of potentially threatening situations, and improve physical as well as psychological stamina. Problem solving skills are also improved with Systema training.
