Now an established club, Systema Mid Wessex brings to both Winchester and central Hampshire, the opportunity to learn and experience the health & self-defence benefits associated with this age-old Russian martial art; its notable ancestry dating back to circa 948 A.D.  Systema focuses on breathing, relaxation, structure and fluidity of movement; its origin founded upon essential survival skills of warriors both on & off the battlefield. Nonetheless, Systema is more than just physical, creative methods by which to fight and survive.

For Systema has evolved, centred around three fundamental values – Strength, Courage & Humility.  These values represent the physical, moral & spiritual maxims that can be applied during 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 psyche and health.

"Without humility we cannot be truly awed, and when we are incapable of becoming awed, we fail to be inspired”

Vladimir Vasiliev / Kwan Lee
