    Hey everyone,
    I'm new to martial arts in general, but would like to learn any kind that is Russian related; preferably Systema.
    I've searched around, but I can't seem to find any instructors or schools for any Russian styles here in Utah. Have I missed anything?
    Does anyone know of any schools here?
    Thanks in advance.

    Where are you located in Utah? I believe there is a Systema school in Orem, Utah.

    South Jordan, but I wouldn't mind the commute.
    Do you have an address or name for the school?
    Thanks

    Longmont, CO is a long ways from Utah. You might try the www.russianmartialart.com site for a listing of affiliated schools with certified instructors, though I have heard there are other schools out there that are unafiliated or no longer affiliated with VV or MR. The RMA site also has a "training partners" section where you can locate other people near you interested in Systema. With the help of some tapes and a partner you can definitely learn a bit. No replacement for actual instruction of course, but it is an option.

    Sorry I didn't get back to you sooner. I will be in Orem tomorrow running some errands and will check out the place to see if it is Systema. If it is, then I'll give you the address and phone number.

    Checked around carefully several times. There isn't a Systema school located in the Utah County area. I don't know about Salt Lake County though but didn't have any success either when I checked there. Sorry. :(

    If I happen to see or hear of one any where in Utah, I'll let you know.

    Fat Fat,

    Joe Mardesich used to teach Systema in Orem, Utah. I don't know if he is still in the area, or if he is willing to teach what he knows... but if you like I can give you the last contact info I had for him.

    Likewise, there is another fellow by the name of Matt Brock who used to work out in a training group in Utah. I believe he is now located in Texas, but he may have some leads for you.

    If your interested, send me a PM along with your real name and contact info (I prefer not to give out other peoples contact info to unknowns), and I'll hook you up with my info.

    Arthur
