Systema Russian Martial Arts to Offer Women’s Fitness & Self- Defense Classes Starting in January

Systema

Russian Martial Arts is very different than its eastern counterparts. Millie and Michael Gonzales, who own Systema Russian Martial Arts in San Antonio, call it a more “mindful” approach to martial arts because of the emphasis on breathing, relaxation and proper body positions and movements.

Their approach to self-defense emphasizes real-world events and skills that focus on force redirection, balance disruption and injury avoidance rather than a mastery of specific self-defense skills.

The Systema approach to self-defense fits women well, says Millie Gonzalez, which is why Systema will begin offering special fitness and self-defense classes for women in January. Women’s fitness and self-defense classes will take place Mondays and Wednesdays, 9-10:30 a.m., starting in January. Systema classes for men and women take place Tuesdays and Thursdays from 7-8:30 p.m. and Saturdays from 9-11 a.m.

Systema is located inside Roots Fitness, 2334 Jackson Keller Rd. For more information visit    www. sanantoniosystema.com.
