About us

Systema Defence Tactics focuses on realistic self defence with a focus on practical application.

As a western martial art there is no need for kimonos, bowing or calling the instructor Sensai.

Systema Vasiliev has instructors in over 50 countries. Systema which translates to “the system” is based on four pillars: breathing, movement, relaxation and body structure. Training in Systema gives you the skills to maintain all four pillars while in adverse situations.

Systema is suitable for both experienced martial arts practitioners and novices alike.

The standard of dress is sport or street clothes.
