The key principle of Systema is non-destruction.
The goal is to ensure that your training and your attitudes do not damage your body or psyche or those of your training partners.
Systema is designed to create, build and strengthen your body and psyche… and by extension, your family and country.
The synergy of three components creates a True Warrior – Healthy Body, Strong Spirit, and Combat Skill.
The body must be free of tension, filled with endurance, flexibility, effortless movement and explosive potential.
The psyche must be calm, free of anger, irritation, fear, self-pity, delusion and pride.
The combat skill includes movements that are powerful, precise, instant, economical, spontaneous, subtle and diverse.
Knowing your strengths and weaknesses is good, but superficial. Systema training is a sure way to see the full extent of your limitations – to see how proud and weak you truly are.
Systema allows you to gain the true strength of spirit that comes from humility and clarity in seeing the purpose of your life.
In a simple yet comprehensive way Systema helps you choose and follow the right path.
“Be a good person and everything else will come to you.” – Mikhail Ryabko, Systema founder
