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 and is paramount to helping one cope with the demands of today’s society whilst enhancing both the psyche and health.
