There is a fundamental difference in Systema instruction for children versus adults. Working with children is done by setting up non-offensive, non-violent drills that teach children to defend themselves without using violence. Children learn how the body works through functional drills that focus on balance, stability, and coordination.
Each class is structured into a warm-up, a fun vigorous activity and a cool-down. Breathing, free movement and relaxation are incorporated into all aspects of the class.
Activities include: creative movement, touch and escape work, learning to fall safely, rolling, running, jumping, strength and flexibility exercises, breathing exercises and problem-solving scenarios.
Children encounter emotional, social, and physical challenges and conflicts in every aspect of their lives, Systema teaches children to breathe away fear and respond with a relaxed mind and body. With continued practice they learn to assess a situation and make the best decision based on how balanced they are in their minds and bodies.
The goal of the program is to help children make better decisions and think preemptively in all aspects of their lives.

HOW SYSTEMA IS DIFFERENT
Russian Systema is a complete set of concepts and training components that enhance one’s life. Acquiring martial art skills is a way to improve the function of all seven physiological systems of the body and all three levels of human abilities: the physical, the psychological and the spiritual.
In our schools, you will learn Russian Systema and see for yourself why this fascinating style is said to open a new page in the world of martial arts.
The signature of a true professional shows itself in an effortless explosion of movements—combinations are at once instinctive, powerful and precise. This results from training a body that is strong, flexible and relaxed, as well as a calm spirit, free of anger, fear and pride.
The key principle of the Systema is non-destruction, to make sure that your training and your attitude does no damage to you or your partners. Systema is designed to create, build and strengthen your body, your psyche, your family and your country.
