Russian Martial Art - Systema offers a unique and refreshing approach to the development of self defense skills and the pursuit of optimum health/wellbeing.
In Systema training, students discover challenges, find deep relaxation, explore practical modern combatives, enhance their physical fitness and face the very core of themselves.
As a principle-based martial art, the core of Systema training is a study of the Foundational Pillars of:
Built on these foundational principles, skills and attributes are developed that give the student a launch pad to discover: Freedom of mind and movement, endurance, striking power, sensitivity, the use of any part of the body for defense and attack, escape and exit strategies, an efficiency that is gauged to the situation, combative or otherwise, and a healthy spirit.
Dedicated Systema training produces a person that is adaptive, powerful, and who does not rely on fixed movements, patterns or forms in problem solving.
Through committed practice under the principles of Systema, the student obtains a set of personalized tools that are applicable to all aspects of their lives, plus an optimism and confidence under all types of stress.
“3 things I love about training with Loren and the crew at Systema Auckland are:
1. Constant Progression - It's the only martial art I've practiced where I always feel like I'm learning more about myself and my body each time I train. With a big emphasis on communication it allows you to give and receive critical feedback, and to control the pace of your learning.
2. Variety - Each class with Loren is unique with an extensive range of exercises, drills and breath work that constantly keeps you stimulated.
3. The Crew - The cool thing about Systema is everyone trains together no matter how long you have been training - this allows you to not only progress much quicker but enables you to better yourself without the ego or competitive nature that arises in most martial arts. This results in a positive and supportive training culture that is not solely focused on simply destroying or dominating your training partners, therefore preventing a lot of unnecessary injuries and or damaged egos.” -Daniel Smith / Student
