"The System"

Test, experiment, train and implement Systema​ into your fitness, fighting arts, and firearm training. Systema is life. 

WE EQUIP YOU TO BE ENERGETIC
 

All matter including power and energy is made up of atoms.  An atom is the smallest constituent unit of ordinary matter that has properties of a chemical element.  Likewise, there are four fundamental states of matter: solid, liquid, gas, and plasma.  We will delve deeper into your mental fortitude, psyche, personal body strength and conditioning.  psyche.  Discover a stronger inner person as you tap into your energetic reservoirs, advanced human technologies and hidden dimensions of potential and expressed energy.  Become the best possible you!

PARAMETERS OF POWER

Power is energy. Likewise, power is also the capacity or ability to direct or influence the behavior of others or the course of events. Regardless of the terrains, environments and conditions you have the power to alter the way you fight or escape. 

 

However, if you never know the condition in which “attacks”or “danger” might occur, then techniques are not the best tools to rely on. What makes you survive and thrive depends largely on the 4 Major Principles: Breath. Relaxation. Kinetics. Structure. 

THE 4 PRINCIPLES

I. Breathing – proper breathing relaxes your body and restores your power in the moment of crisis against negatively charged emotions that rob your power.
 

II. Relaxation – essential in taking less damage from any attack and transferring your true power into your opponent and allow you to move freely.


III. Kinetic Motion – creates constant flow of power and movement from within, that allows you to escape and counter seamlessly.


IV. Structure – aligns your body to the most powerful state and overcomes others' strength effortlessly.
