We make the following announcement in the beginning of almost every class:

  • Please ask questions!
  • Please do not do anything you don’t want to do! Sitting out drills is ok; doing the exercises at your level (not someone else’s) is expected.
  • Please tell us if something hurts! Let us know of your injuries before the class, and please speak up if you are not feeling too great during the class.
  • Please stop any time you want to stop!
  • Please protect your training partner, as well as yourself, at all times!
  • Please communicate with your training partners, don’t be a strong silent type. Ask your partner to turn things down or up, and to give you feedback on your movement- and be ready to provide feedback to your partner too!
  • Please don’t break anything! We mean- anything- floor, walls, mirrors, your training partners, or yourselves! 🙂

SPECIAL DEAL for August 2019: 60 pounds for all the training in August. That’s 8 sessions. Classes will never be so cheap again. The bad news is, 4, 5, 6 or 7 sessions is also 60 pounds. It’s like paying the gym membership, it’s the same price even if you don’t train 🙂

Designed to encourage people to train. Cards will not be accepted this month, if your card has expiry date of August 2019, it will be rolled to September automatically. One lesson is 20 pounds, cash, before lesson starts, please. No other discounts for anyone this month, thank you for your understanding!

How Much? Pay-as-you-go classes are £20 pounds. You can also book 10 classes for £120.00, which we think is a much better deal! (not available in August 2019)

Is there a short cut? How quickly will I learn it? Whether you go for private lessons or join our open classes and seminars, please understand: you need to pay for knowledge in something more meaningful than money. We are not information vendors. Internet is full of them, and you can buy any package you like that promises you unbelievable skills in 1 hour or less if you only buy a video, or a book. We believe that while videos and books help, the real knowledge can only be obtained by you with the help and guidance of a qualified instructor. You cannot learn diving without getting wet, and you cannot learn Systema by watching the videos 🙂 The speed of your progress depends on how much effort you put in, and on the level of your trust in us, and in the drills.

If there is a specific, explicit goal that you have, we can help you achieve it in about 20 hours. This is not to become an expert, or to obtain mastery, but to be familiar with the subject.

Newcomers are always welcome.  Please come to the class a few minutes early and meet the group before the class gets started, and bring the Understanding the Risks form with you.

No risk trial 🙂

If this is your first class, and for whatever reason you feel that what we do is not right for you, there will be no charge for the lesson. But if you liked it, you will have a choice to pay for one lesson, or to buy a block of 10 sessions. Or, if you’re still not sure, arrange for a return visit.

Private lessons?

Yes, there are a few slots still available for private lessons. Before arranging for private training a face to face meeting is necessary, so that we can discuss your goals, expectations and constraints. This can be done either after a regular class, or we can meet for a coffee at a mutually convenient time. Price-  similar to what you would spend on a doctor, physio, osteopath, or a golf pro. Just to save us both time: private lessons at 50 pounds for an hour do not exist.  Please send an email or an SMS to David to arrange for a chat.
