Systema has also another name: "Know yourself". Training Systema – is a way to fully learn about your own limitations, this is also a way to see what a person really is. With Systema we can create true strength of the spirit. Regular exercise also leads to an improvement of all bodily functions and increases the abilities of the person on the physical, mental and spiritual level, which significantly improves the quality of life.
A key principle of Systema is to do nothing that destroys. The aim of this principle is that exercise does not cause any damage to the body and mind of the students and their partners. This means that Systema supports and strengthens the body, mental health, family and the country.
The roots of Systema have their origin in the Christian Orthodox faith. It proclaims that everything good or bad that would happen to us in our life would happen for our understanding of ourselves. A proper training of Systema pursues the same aim: each participant must be brought into the state that contributes the most to find out as much about himself.
Michail Ryabko often says to the beginners: "Be a good person and everything else will come." In other words - Systema allows you to choose the right path and follow it from then on.
