Now in its 6th year, we are an established club bringing to Winchester and its environs, the opportunity to learn and experience the health and combative benefits associated with this age-old Russian martial art; its ancestry dating back over a thousand years to 948 A.D.


Systema focuses on breathing, relaxation, structure and fluidity of movement; its origin founded upon those essential survival skills of warriors both on & off the battlefield. However, Systema is more than just physiological, creative methods by which to fight and survive.

Systema has evolved centred around three fundamental values – Strength, Courage & Humility.  These values represent the physical, moral & spiritual ideals that should be applied on one’s journey through life.  Only by understanding one’s limitations can a person gain sufficient humility & clarity to be able to react and manage any given situation or event.


To ‘Know Thyself’ is a fundamental concept of Systema and is paramount to helping one cope with the demands of today’s society whilst enhancing both the psyche and health.

"Without humility we cannot be truly awed, and when we are incapable of becoming awed, we fail to be inspired”

Vladimir Vasiliev / Kwan Lee
