We are a certified school in the Washington, DC metropolitan area dedicated to the study of the Russian Martial Art of Systema under the guidance of Vladimir Vasiliev.
Our purpose is to offer the public the opportunity to study Russian Martial Art for self-defense, wellness and personal development.
We teach people how to properly hit, fight on the ground, defend against multiple attackers and mobs, escape from locks, chokes and holds, use everyday objects as improvised weapons, defend against strikes and kicks, protect others, fight in confined spaces, and even defend against a wide variety of weapons including knives, sticks, bats, guns and chains. Plus much more!
We also teach a variety of breathing techniques to help you relax and remain calm (inside and outside of our class), coupled with a wide variety of drills and mobility exercises to help you move like a much younger person!
