Systema Perth had it's humble beginnings in 2008 with just two guys - Rob and Stefano. With no school in Perth, we came together to learn from each other as best we could, using whatever learning material we could get our hands on, and letting our curiosity and intuition guide how and what we learned.
As two enthusiasts with a passion for learning and practicing Systema, the Systema Perth School officially opened its doors to the public at large in 2009 with a clear and simple goal: to bring to others the joy, fun, excitement, and benefits we ourselves experienced when we first came upon Systema.
The Systema Perth School has now been open for over 7 years. In that time, our dedicated members have grown and changed, learning from each other, helping one another to become stronger, challenging one another to really learn about ourselves.
As time passes, our only wish is to continue spreading Systema to those who find value in its training and teachings.
We've come a long way since we first opened our doors, but there's still plenty of room for improvement, and much yet to learn.
Having trained in various Eastern style martial arts for close to a decade, Stefano came upon Systema in 2006, and has been training with Vladimir Vasiliev since 2007.
After travelling to Toronto to study directly from Vladimir Vasiliev at Systema Headquarters in 2008, he was given the privilege of starting a group in Perth as Instructor-in-Training.
His latest trip to Headquarters in 2011 saw Stefano become a fully Certified Instructor under Vladimir Vasiliev.
Cursed with a quirky and often unfunny sense of humour, as well as a passion for training with and learning from others, he does his best to make each and every class informative, rewarding, and most importantly fun!
