Systema teaches the mind and body to stay relaxed through breathing and moving. Students will learn to focus their energy and relax their mind and body through specialized breathing and movement exercises. This unique Martial Art is not based around fighting techniques, but rather a range of free form and natural movements that calm the fight or flight instinct, teaching the body that fighting or running aren’t the only options. Students will build confidence and learn to protect and control their body. They will learn to focus their thoughts and feelings while having fun at the same time.
