Before lockdown I was fortunate enough to train in Systema with Andy and am looking forward to training with him again now the classes are open. He is a very professional and extremely knowledgeable instructor as well as being a great guy! The classes are very friendly and welcoming and I would encourage both beginners and those with experience of other Martial Arts to try Systema - you will enjoy it, and learn a lot!
Like many kids I tried judo and karate. However, growing up watching films where actors skillfully disarm the 'baddies' I quickly lost interest with belts and punching the air etc. Now in my 40s I love the fact I can stay fit whilst learning the skills I've seen in many films.
Met one of the school's students at my local Systema school last night. He was everything a Systema student should be: kind, joyful, helpful, grateful --a blessing! Congratulations, Systema South West. In gratitude, I couldn't recommend Systema Russian Martial Art more highly, and this school is one more shining example!!
