One of the most Internationally Recognized and preeminent Russian Martial Art and Self Defense schools in the world, Systema St. Louis teaches the ability to prevail in stressful, dangerous and violent situations in as close to actual environments and conditions as possible, in addition to states of extreme duress, and exhaustion. Our training is based on the principles and philosophy of Systema - the Russian Martial Art. In our combat system, uniforms and belts are irrelevant. We are not fitness trainers who teach self defense. We do not focus on robotic stances and drills. We focus on teaching street-worthy, battle-proven skills that are quick, unsportsmanlike & lethal, focusing on the body’s natural positioning and movement to be able to efficiently strike, absorb a strike, avoid and re-direct from any position.
Our training philosophy is not to be confused with any traditional fighting arts and/or combat sports fighting system. We are not in the business of taking years to instruct a student how to incapacitate or eliminate even the most basic fighter, but rather months, comparable to the time a special operations soldier has to prepare for a mission.
There are just too many aspects of traditional fighting arts and sports-based fighting systems that are life-threateningly impractical and inefficient for the street and actual brutal violence.
