Russian Martial Art: Systema Self Defense Seminar
6:00 p.m.
Simon Rec Center

Come join Joe Mayberry from the St. Louis Combat Institute to explore the ancient Russian martial art of Systema. Mr. Mayberry will teach students an effective method of self-defense utilizing an ancient combat system. Systema is an ancient Russian martial art adapted for use in modern warfare by the Russian Special Operations and the Soviet spy network. Needing the fastest and most effective training regime for their elite fighters and undercover operatives, the Soviets experimented with many combat arts, only to rediscover the most deadly and sophisticated method among their own traditional Slavic hill-fighting roots.
