groups try to help each other to reach their maximum potential.
Hopefully we try to leave our egos at the door. Everyone works to
his/her own level and whilst there is no compulsion to go beyond this,
there is encouragement to try to push oneself gradually beyond one’s
comfort zone. Classes are characteristically very friendly, and
students tend to build up a strong camaraderie. At the end of a class,
everyone sits in a circle, and each student expresses his own views on
how the class went. This provides a good opportunity for discussion and
In a violent or
stressful situation, the individual often finds that one (or more) of
these pillars disappears, resulting in a greater chance for an
undesirable outcome. Therefore, all training exercises and movements
incorporate and emphasize these concepts.
It is not our goal to
overload the student with a set of common techniques. This would
naturally go against our training philosophy. Over a period of time,
each student becomes comfortable navigating their bodies in a variety
of situations. The System shows that techniques become a side-effect of
the proper application of the four pillars of Systema. Since the "real
world" presents potentially an infinite number of different threat
situations, the ultimate goal is to be flexible, aware, and relaxed
enough to work properly within any given context.
