sYSTEMA OR kRAV MAGA... WHICH DO I CHOOSE?

​DIFFERENT APPROACH

Plain and simple, the approach is different. Aggression is fear disguised as strength. As much as you think you will go all “Beast Mode” under an attack, your adrenaline will work against you within 60 seconds. Also, the attacker may just be more of a Beast than you.

We don’t teach you to win, We teach you NOT TO LOSE! 


​Survival is everything!

​A FASTER AND MORE EFFECTIVE LEARNING CURVE

​Under high duress and stress, you won’t remember any techniques. Your goal is to develop an intuitive body and turn it into an intelligent weapon! You will learn how to Problem Solves. Most other systems do no teach you to problem solve. They just say ” do this and this”. But one technique may not work for another person. We will help you to weaponize yourself that works YOU! You don’t conform to Systema

Systema ​conforms to you!

​INTELLIGENT AND INTUITIVE...RATHER THAN REDUNDANT AGGRESSION

​Most current “Self Defense” programs are unable to go deep in truly understanding violence. Systema will help you learn how to control your emotions, how breathing syncs directly to your mental state and how to weaponize your breathing to get you out of trouble and realize that you have an infinite amount of resources.


Our motto is "POZNAI SEBE" wich translates to "Know Thyself". It is in the pursuit of understanding yourself that you will be better off in handling violence and chaos rather than having to get over yourself first and not be able to prevail against your situation.

Breathe  Move  Fight!

​Systema may be one of the fiercest ​Fighting Styles on the Planet

​WHAT WILL I LEARN FROM TRAINING IN SYSTEMA?

quote-right

​​Learn Effective Skills Immediately

​Systema is based on Four Principles: BREATHING, POSTURES, MOVEMENT and TENSION/RELAXATION


It is this formula that allows you to move more effectively and learn how your body performs under stress and duress.


The goal is to be in a calm state of mind while being abel to harness relaxed and devastating power!


There are NO antiquated techniques. You will be problem solving and making up move on the spot. You will surprise your self as to what kind of warrior already lives inside of you.

​HAND TO HAND COMBAT AND GROUND FIGHTING

All aspects of our training are based on the same principles, including ground work. 


There is NO need to lock someone, especially in a multiple attacker scenario. When you lock someone, you also lock yourself!


​You will learn quick and effective skills that are sometimes considered " Dirty Work".


​Systema Striking has been scientifically proven to have devastating effects on the opponents body in a "ballistic" manner. Petite women in our class have had success against men over 200 lbs in applying the Striking Principles attributed uniquely to Systema!

quote-right

​FIGHTING AGAINST WEAPONS...Knife, Gun, Stick etc.

​You will be exposed to an HONEST approach to fighting against weapons.


No fancy moves!


The strategies you will have been tested with soldiers on the battlefield and in urban warfare. You will get cut, you may get shot and you will get hit by a stick.


That is ok!


​Itt is how you handle the messiness of fighting against a weapon that will determine your success.

quote-right

​URBAN COMBAT

​​Many High Level Black Belts have never done their break falls on concrete. If they did, they would stop doing “break falls” immediately. 


You will learn how to fight and work in environments such as in the city, in the woods even fighting in water!


This also includes car-jackings. You will learn how to use your environment not only for fighting, but to escape and hide so as the attacker is unable to reach you.


quote-right

​OVERALL HEATH & WELLNESS

​​There is no other system that includes an in depth approach to “healing”.


As it is said many times in the Systema community, “If you learn to destroy, you need to learn to fix”!


It is this balanced approach to training that separates systema from all others.


​You will see immediate improvements in your breathing, mobility, joint strength and stress relief.


Our goal and we can guarantee it, is to leave feeling better than you came in!

​​​Seminar Topics - Improvised Weapons & Multiple Attackers

​We are excited to be having one of the Systema Twins, Brendon Zettler, back in Rhode Island. Brendon is a Sr. Instructor who trains directly with Vladimir Vasiliev at the North American Headquarters in Toronto, Canada.


Brendon offers a wealth of experience and knowledge in the field of combatives as it pertains to Systema. He has personally taught Police Officers, members of numerous International Swat Teams and the Canadian Armed Forces.


Recently, he has been in high demand for his instruction style and has had seminars in Europe, Asia, Australia and throughout North America.


The seminar will cover tactics and strategies that are not commonly trained in self defense courses. The focus will be on the "unexpected" realities of violence in an urban environment.


Topics will include, but not limited to

Improvised Weapons ( chain, personal items, environmental tools etc. )


Dealing with multiple attackers both on the ground and standing. This will also include Mass Attacks
