According to the United States 2010 Census, 2.8 million
children in the United
States are afflicted with a disability. Disabilities
include deafness, blindness, physical impairment and mental and emotional
duress. These issues can affect the child’s confidence and self esteem, in
addition to their well being. These emotions can last a lifetime and lead to
other maladies over the course of their life. In addition, the financial toll
on their parents can be overpowering.
Stories of disabled children being harassed, bullied and denied access to self defense training due to their disabilities are rampant worldwide.
St. Louis Systema offers classes and seminars to those special children who can benefit
from the Russian Martial Art, known as Systema. In Systema, the synergy of
three components creates a TRUE WARRIOR - Combat Skill, Strong Spirit and Healthy
Body. Unlike other martial arts that focus on aggression and high levels of
physical ability, Systema understands that everyone is different, with varying
levels of ability. Our goal is to strengthen those abilities that are already
present in each child, no matter what disability they may have. We show them
that everyone can be strong, confident and empowered.
St. Louis Systema offers these classes and seminars free of charge to any parent, group, school or organization.
When Systema Founder Mikhail Ryabko created the foundations
of Systema, he noted that everything that happens to us in life; good or bad,
has one ultimate purpose, that is to create the best possible conditions for a
person to understand him or herself. Our goal is to grow on that
philosophy and to share it with others.
