With so many martial arts to choose from
why train at Melbourne Systema?

Great culture, practical training.
Adam's classes are cleverly structured to
give the sense of a continuous unfolding
of self-evident principles.

Tim Osborn

I have been doing different martial arts for
20 years and when I discovered Systema it
was a real eye opener for me. It was like
starting all over again but this time with the
perfect balance of effective self defence,
health, fitness, personal development and fun.

Dean Smith

The people I train with make training a joy
and Adam, our teacher, is full of insights,
knowledge and has a true passion for
Systema and your safety.

Group Classes

Group Classes

Systema is the Russian word for “The System” and is a martial art combining both body and mind. Based on the simple principles of movement, breathing, relaxation and structure Systema is constantly evolving. Here at Melbourne Systema we have developed a systematic approach to learning which has been designed to break down the fundamental concepts of Systema enabling you to learn faster and gain a deeper understanding of the principles involved rather than just blindly copy techniques.

Private Classes

Private Classes

Private Training sessions are the quickest and most effective way to learn. They can be taken as an adjunct to group lessons, or as a standalone training program. Privates can be a great tool for brushing up on weak areas or to delve into areas of personal interest. Lessons can progress at the student’s own pace, and can span any range of topics or special needs.
