I tried to start this in another thread, but thought this might work out better here.

Everyone, post your Studio, who is the instructor(s), and where are you located.
Let's get specific, with address, phone numbers, web sites and e-mails listed too.
How about class times? List of group classes, and if private lessons are available.

That way if we are ever in the area we can come visit and play.
It also gives us an idea of how Systema is and has grown through out the world.
So, this is it, starting listing!


We have classes in London, Cambridge and Yorkshire, plus workshop all over.
The school is certified by Vladimir Vasiliev
The school website has the forum down but Vlad has Demetry on it to fix it.

Speaking of Demetry, he lives close to me. I am going to try and start hitting his classes too. He says that he will teach me Russian. I told him I already know how to drink.
I think Jaybacca and I have solved the problem. I'll start wearing a helment when I'm drinking!
:rolleyes: forgot to post where Demetry is!

(ARE you sure that is the spelling of his name?):confused:

ps: there is no helmut strong enough for you!
Is this just for websites, or schools too?? If schools are ok, then...

Instructor: Peter Watson

I called Peter about a week ago. This is a bit too far away for regular classes, but he said he was thinking of putting together a seminar if he can gather enough interested folks.

Any Aussies looking for Systema - call Peter - i wanna go to this seminar!!

Actually, my girlfriend has been bugging me to spend the next few years in Canada - and i'm starting to think its a good idea - i could check out Vlad...:D
...and welcome aboard Baoquan, post any and all information you have here!

And come to Canada. Yes, check out Vlad, stay for awhile.
Is your girlfriend from here?

See you soon!

Cheers, Roland.

No my girlfriend is not Canadian, but she lived there for a year, loved it, wants to go back. I spent a couple of months over there last year, and loved it.

Yeah, canada is very tempting....:D

I tried to get up there last night (I'm staying at a hotel on the Harbour, between Yonge and Bay) but couldn't figure out how to get a bus after the subway ends. I spent half an hour in the main station speaking with the information people. Frustrating! I should've rented a car.
How much longer are you going to be in TO?
I will be there monday morning, just seeing if you are free or are planning to train at Vlads!
Arnisador - the bus station is right above the last subway stop. You need any route heading north on Yonge, which is most of them I think.

Thanks--they couldn't help me figure out how to catch the bus after the subway ended. I'm back in the States now I'm afraid. I was relaly hoping to get up there!
