Systema combines self-defense with holistic principles

Systema Martial Art is based upon four principles:

Breathing – since holding your breath creates tension (or comes from it) we teach breathing techniques to help reduce tension.

Posture – we always try to maintain our “square” so that we are do not lose balance

Constant Motion – continuing the motion of an attacker and something as simple as moving from the line of attack can save your life.

Relaxation – learning to be comfortable with multiple situations helps to maintain relaxation and that in turn makes it easier for you to do your job

Systema training is available for men and women 16 years and over in Greenville, South Carolina

Systema students garner great benefits when it comes to self defense as well as personal development

I am a student of Greenville Systema and have been involved with this program for approximately two plus years. The “System” has taught me to control my response and reaction in stressful situations through a very natural breathing process. I have also improved my physical abilities and confidence in confrontational situations where I previously would have over reacted. While Systema is a martial art it is more importantly a way of life which allows the practitioner to lower his or her daily stress level and to react in a more controlled manner under pressure

I am writing to endorse the courses offered by Systema Greenville. I have attended numerous training sessions with Systema Greenville over the last 2 years. I have benefited from these sessions in a number of ways. These benefits include: decrease in physical tension, enhanced ability to work through stress, greater personal pragmatism in physical fitness, increased confidence in personal protection, expanded perception of surroundings, and clearer intuition of threat vs. non-threat.

I am writing this letter to give my personal recommendation for the Systema Greenville / Systema Martial Arts school. I was recently introduced and took part in a Systema session in Greenville with Dr. Robert Schwartz. I’ve taken part in other typical martial arts programs in the past and have to say that this was one of the best. I’ve played high level sports all my life, and in the short 2-hour session we had I was amazed of how little I knew. I learned some really valuable skills about self-defense, tension, and breathing

SYSTEMA HEALTH

Unless you are already involved in a martial art it may not be intuitively obvious that embracing the principles of Systema in particular is all about your health. That is because embedded within its core it teaches you personal protection and through its four principles it offers you way to grasp what the word Freedom really means.

Systema is a lifestyle that is focused on reducing tension in all aspects of your life. It helps you to understand that there options (where as without it you may have thought your only choices were all or none). Yes Systema is a Martial Art but it is also a Healing Art. Some go as far as to say the healing art actually came first.

Along with weekly Systema training classes we offer various advanced training events through the year
