Aaron Ellis – Russian Combat Instructor

Systema means ‘the system’ and is based on a system of principles called ‘The 4 Pillars’ which allows the style to be quickly learned, and easily used, in even the most dangerous of situations.

This training is truly unique, a style that was locked behind closed doors until the fall of the Soviet Union. It is the style for those in immediate need of a truly viable form of self defence.

The Russian fighting system makes no distinction between blocks, strikes and holds, as every movement is multifunctional. 

Techniques are based on the natural movement of the body resulting in unique, unpredictable, and highly effective moves. 

Systema uses different parts of legs, arms and body to strike, kick, slap, drill, pinch and push to disorient, shock, disarm and stop attackers.

Training in the Russian Method is not done by repeating set moves and stances, but by gradually finding solutions to the problems each training exercise presents.

You will learn how to move and why it works…

This type of learning gives rise to a multitude of answers to the same problem. These solutions are powerful tools; they are not easy to forget.

The non-competitive aspect of Systema is especially important here because rather than attempting to ‘win’ in class, the whole class works together to refine each other’s responses to varying combat stimuli. In time you’ll discover a very strong natural sensitivity to the intent, force, and physical and mental condition of others.

Body Manipulation

Finding the solutions to challenging physical situations becomes easier if one adheres to four basic principles which we call the 4 Pillars of Power these pillars or principles are what we will be deeply studying in this seminar.

The great thing is this, these Pillars of Power are not style dependent they will improve all martial arts styles!

Here are the 4 pillars and a brief description of how they related to combat.

1. Breathing

The way we breathe affects us physically and mentally. This becomes obvious when mental or physical changes coincide with changes in breathing. Have you noticed that you breathe out more when you are angry? And that short sniffs in through the nose can make you feel sad and cry?

Understanding and control of breathing processes allow constant movement, correct form through control of mental stress (pain or fright) and aid relaxation.

Once you start to understand breathing you easily realise why it is pillar number one.

2. Form or Body Structure

‘Form’ means to make yourself comfortable and to align your body by supporting it using the balance of the skeleton rather than muscular tension. This puts the body in the strongest, steadiest position and allows ease of movement, relaxation and normal breathing. 

3. Relaxation

Bodily tension is different in every person. Precise, creative and economical movement is only possible within a relaxed body. Good breathing is also only possible in a relaxed body. Thus we can restore normal breathing by relaxation and vice versa. Constant movement and proper form are achieved by relaxation and ridding the body of unnecessary tension.

4. Continual Movement

The body is designed to move and should do so continuously when you seek to physically interact with others. It takes effort to start pushing a car but once it’s moving it is easy.

You must be able to move each part of the body precisely and independently, but with the whole body and mind working together as one unit. This makes it possible to keep the form of the body, helps relaxation and aids circulation and breathing.

You can see how each pillar or principle relies on each other.

How can one prepare for real life?

Painful Points

The answer is to make the training environment correct. For example if someone falls over it is likely to be on concrete – so one must learn to fall safely on a hard floor without mats.

This allows development of an accurate approach to falling and avoids the mental unpreparedness of transferring skills from an artificial to a real environment.

Sorry guys traditional breakfalls don’t work on hard surfaces or uneven ground, you may break your hands.

Also, the use of boxing gloves, pads and other protective equipment is to be avoided. Every opportunity should be taken to experience things in a way that is as close to reality as possible.
