About this pro

What is Russian Systema?

Systema is an ancient Russian Martial Art that was adapted for modern warfare by the Russian Special Operations. Needing the fastest, most effective training for their elite fighters, the Soviets rediscovered Systema. Systema was held in the highest classification by the Soviets until just recently when it was revealed by Vasiliev and Ryabko to the West.

Systema is subtle, brutal and uncompromising form of defense, covering all aspects of combat training - hand to hand to the use of weapons in any and all combat environments.


Who can train in Systema Combat?

Systema is a excellent complimentary skill for Law Enforcement Officers, Security Officers, First Responders and Military Personnel but because Systema uses your own capabilities it is ideal for a individual with no martial arts background. SYSTEMA COMBAT will present tactics to overcome adversity and gain a new sense of yourself, regardless of your background, previous experience or conditioning.

SYSTEMA COMBAT offers a complete reality based, self defense class for professional or everyday citizens.
