      Systema - Russian Martial Art - FREE Self-Defense Class and Training

      Learn to reduce tension even under stressful situations where you have to defend yourself or protect others with this devastating yet flexible fighting system used by the Russian Special Operations and the Soviet spy network. Even if you never have to engage in combat you can experience freedom and the health benefits that come with training in Systema.

      Your first class is FREE!

      Systema Greenville classes are led by Bobby Schwartz and Jake Pyhala. Both are Certified Instructors in Systema Russian Martial Arts by Vladimir Vasiliev.

      Classes are every Thursday night and Sunday afternoon at Cleveland Park* in Greenville, SC, at 7:15 pm and 1:30 pm respectively, and last about 1 1/2 – 2 hours. *Make sure to contact us in advance to see if we are meeting at the park or at our indoor facilities.

      Parking is free. Full details can be found at

      You will learn how to properly hit, fight on the ground, defend against multiple attackers and mobs, escape from locks, chokes and holds, use everyday objects as improvised weapons, defend against strikes and kicks, protect others, fight in confined spaces, and even defend against a wide variety of weapons including knives, sticks, bats, guns and chains. Plus much more!

      You will also learn a variety of breathing techniques to help you relax and remain calm (inside and outside of our class), coupled with a wide variety of drills and mobility exercises to help you move like a much younger person!

      We welcome men and women of all fitness and skill levels, even if you have zero self-defense or martial arts experience.

      Classes are open to anyone 16 years or older, and there are no contracts, no uniforms and no equipment to buy.

      Please wear comfortable clothes that includes long pants or trousers.

      All participates will be required to sign our standard waiver form.
