Met one of the school's students at my local Systema school last night. He was everything a Systema student should be: kind, joyful, helpful, grateful --a blessing! Congratulations, Systema South West. In gratitude, I couldn't recommend Systema Russian Martial Art more highly, and this school is one more shining example!! More...

Been attending for the past few months and I'm hooked. Everyone was incredibly friendly and welcoming from the get go. Andy is just an amazing instructor, learned alot from him. Not just about Systema but pushing my own limits as well. Looking forward to the next one! More...

I trained with Andy and others from Systema South West at a Martin Wheeler seminar. Great people with real skills and genuine care. Highly recommended!

One of the most interesting, thought provoking and different martial arts I've ever come across. A session with Andy is an experience, one that leaves you feeling like you've really learnt a lot, not just about Systema but about yourself too. Andy is a great instructor, and the people who train there are friendly and welcoming. Well worth a try. More...

Been attending the class for the last 3 weeks and feel like I have learned so much already, all the members make new joiners feel really welcome from the outset and you instantly feel part of the team. Andy is a very professional instructor who clearly has a vast knowledge base and an excellent teaching manner that anyone no matter their ability can learn from. If you are intrested in learning Systema but haven't quite taken the step yet, come along and try it you won't look back, every week so far has been fascinating and you will learn things about yourself. Highly recommended. More...

Whether you're skilled in martial arts or fairly new to the scene, I highly recommend Systema South West. There's a great mix of experience with both novices and people with many years experience in martial arts. Andy does an amazing job, delivering in-depth yet easy to understand tuition on different topics every week. Systema is a fascinating and unique martial art; Each technique is backed-up by theory and discussion about why it's effective. At the end of each lesson, you'll feel stronger and more capable. This is a highly enjoyable and effective course - well recommended. More...

I have been training in Systema for a while now, having studied other martial arts in the past. I have found Systema to be an interesting and extremely effective martial art. I can also thoroughly recommend training with the club. Andy is an excellent and extremely knowledgeable instructor, who makes new students feel welcome and instantly at ease, as do his other students. More...

Phucking excellent! Realistic survival based Russian martial art training (not a sport). Andy is a superb instructor with over 40 years in the Martial Arts and he's also a 7th Dan in Kenpo. Each Systema lesson is really well planned and structured. Learn methods of breathing, movement, relaxation, and structure. Train with a variety of traditional and improvised weapons - long, medium, short and pocket sticks, knives, guns and belts, jackets, hats, newspapers and magazines. On hard floors, mats, walls, grass and mud. More...

I would thoroughly recommend the Systema South West club after joining 2 months ago. The club members are diverse, friendly and always helpful. Andy the instructor is very professional and spends lots of time explaining the moves and techniques. He always delivers a well structured lesson and towards the end of the class incorporates all these different aspects to achieve his aim. I started the class primarily for my daughter, so she could gain the knowledge and confidence of self defence. She has really taken to Systema and it is now the highlight of her week. To see her training and being able to handle herself against guys twice her size is testament to Andy's skill and instruction. I would encourage anyone considering a self defence class to come and give it go! More...

Having trained in other martial arts for a number of years, I know how effective, practical and unique Systema really is. The club is very welcoming and helpful making it perfect for beginners and advanced martial artists alike. I recommend everyone to take advantage and try one of their free classes! More...

I learned a lot about myself and my body and found Systema to be the best conditioning training going! No pain, no gain as they say. Andy is a great teacher of the art, and no matter what your ability will ensure that you take something valuable away from each session...highly recommended! More...
