Systema focuses on breathing, relaxation, structure and fluidity of movement; its origin founded upon those essential survival skills of warriors both on & off the battlefield. However, Systema is more than just physiological, creative methods by which to fight and survive.
Systema has evolved centred around three fundamental values – Strength, Courage & Humility. These values represent the physical, moral & spiritual ideals that should be applied on one’s journey through life. Only by understanding one’s limitations can a person gain sufficient humility & clarity to be able to react and manage any given situation or event.
To ‘Know Thyself’ is a fundamental concept of Systema ('to be aware of your own strengths and limitations'), and is paramount to helping one cope with the demands of today’s society whilst enhancing both the psyche and health.
