With so many martial arts to choose from why train at Melbourne Systema?

Doesn’t matter if you’re a beginner or expert. Adam teaches you how to be more efficient with your movement and really cuts through all the nonsense of other martial arts.

Ryan Cahill

Great culture, practical training. Adam’s classes are cleverly structured to give the sense of a continuous unfolding of self-evident principles.

Tim Osborn

The people I train with make training a joy and Adam, our teacher, is full of insights, knowledge and has a true passion for Systema and your safety.

Andrew Dobson

What stands out in Systema is the ultra-fast learning curve, the simplicity of techniques, complete freedom of movement and the emphasis on continual attacks as well as economy of motion.

At Melbourne Systema classes are held in a relaxed, friendly atmosphere. In Systema maturity, attentiveness and a desire to work are some of the characteristics necessary to learn. Basic courteousness and communication with training partners is essential in fostering an enjoyable and safe training environment for all.

We offer a variety of classes to suit your individual needs.


Systema is the Russian word for “The System” and is a martial art combining both body and mind. Based on the simple principles of movement, breathing, relaxation and structure Systema is constantly evolving. Here at Melbourne Systema we have developed a systemised approach to learning which has been designed to break down the fundamental concepts of Systema enabling you to learn faster and gain a deeper understanding of the principles rather than just blindly copy techniques.



Private Training sessions are the quickest and most effective way to learn. They can be taken as an adjunct to group lessons, or as a standalone training program. Privates can be a great tool for brushing up on weak areas or to delve into areas of personal interest. Lessons can progress at the student’s own pace, and can span any range of topics or special needs.




Our seminars are power packed events that will allow you to dramatically increase your knowledge and take your existing skills to the next level. Hosting both national and international instructors our seminars are guaranteed to provide you with the most up to date Systema training.



Our workshops are held throughout the year and are a chance to explore given topics in greater depth than regular classes. They are designed to fast track your learning and understanding of the fundamental principles of Systema. They are free to all current Melbourne Systema students and only $30 for non-members.
