Loren continues his up-skilling through daily training, running weekly Systema Auckland training sessions, networking with Systema instructors world-wide, attending seminars, organizing/running workshops, and arranging seminars with international instructors here in New Zealand.
Loren rounds out his teaching/knowledge base by drawing upon the 8 years he spent working as a front-line police officer. He has seen violence first-hand and has intimate knowledge of what it takes to survive a violent encounter.
Loren creates a healthy environment where those interested in Systema can work as equal explorers and delve into this unique art. His goals continue to be to bring awareness and confidence to his training partners/students. His larger goal is to always remain an engaged student himself.
Loren currently works as a certified massage therapist (in both mobile and clinical settings) in the Auckland area. For more info, please visit: www.systemaauckland.com/massage/bodywork or www.lifestylestherapy.co.nz
