Systema  a Russian martial art taught to Special Forcesis one of the most creative, powerful and effective martial arts. It is characterized by free-flowing, relaxed movement without anything pre-planned. There are no memorized techniques. No stances. No katas.  It is pure training and movement at its finest.

If you have been training in other arts, here is a great opportunity to expand your knowledge and open yourself to new experiences. If you have never done any martial art, we welcome you to experience the strength that comes from relaxation. Experience the freedom of movement that comes from flow.
