It is our mission to instill confidence, self respect, self esteem, physical strength, and mental confidence in each and every St. Louis Systema student.
As parents of younger children ourselves, we are constantly aware of the dangers facing children in our country today. The names Shawn Hornbeck, Jaycee Dugard, Elizabeth Smart and Jessica Lunsford remind us daily of the constant threat of child abduction. This, along with the growing problem of bullying, have lead us to develop, with the assistance of the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, a program to teach kids the necessary tools needed to defend themselves in the time of need.
Systema Kids is a fun and positive class and is designed to teach children ages 8-12 the essence of self defense. Children will be taught the four foundations of Russian Martial Arts: breathing, relaxation, movement and posture, while focusing on improving their listening and motor skills. Kids will learn these skills in a safe, playful, and positive setting.
These classes are safe, high energy and fun, while teaching the child the important life lessons.
Systema Kids classes will promote:
• Physical fitness and health • Emphasis on Natural movement and play • Developing Creativity through Movement • Problem-solving skills for dealing with conflict • Building confidence and self-esteem • Developing strong self-discipline • Learning to work well with others as a team • Anti-bullying prevention and awareness
Systema Kids teaches street-smart techniques that are easy to learn and almost impossible to forget.
Systema Kids does not teach fancy kicks and acrobatic skills but rather realistic self-defense skills that will keep your child safe in the face of danger.
Systema Kids will learn to protect themselves easily and effectively.Whether it be a child predator or neighborhood bully, our kids know how to handle themselves.
Systema Kids classes are held on Tuesday evening and Saturday morning and are limited in size due the the personalized nature of the classes. Contact us for more information
