Toronto Martial Arts training with FIGHTCLUB delivers a way for you to train your body and mind through work in SYSTEMA. We teach you practical, functional, modern martial arts skills and the value of staying safe and healthy.

Adult SYSTEMA Training

Adult SYSTEMA Training teaches the importance of protecting yourself, loved ones and physical fitness. We teach you practical modern martial arts skills and have fun doing so in a community of friendly instructors and students.

Youth SYSTEMA Training

Our Youth Systema Training Program not only teaches self defense techniques but helps increase your child's speed, stamina, strength, while developing better balance, coordination, and timing.


FIGHTCLUB Seminars offer students extended training in specific aspects of SYSTEMA. Past seminars have explored; improvised weapons, gun defense, knife defense, working with sticks, breathing techniques, confined spaces, outdoor winter training and much more.

    I think the takeaway for me is to appreciate just how in Systema, we've developed a deep understanding of movement as communication, not simply self defense, or combat sport. I always thought this was a beautiful aspect of the training, but since my exposure to other clubs and different schools of martial arts, I'm beginning to realize that it's not just pretty philosophy, it's supremely practical.

    FightClub has been like a second home for both myself and my kids for the last six years. Manny's lessons are life lessons and apply to so much more than self-defense. Whether you're at work, or school, or out and about you can apply all the ideas you'll learn to everything you do. And on the off-chance that you do need self-defense... you'll be ready! From the daily classes, to the specialized seminars, we are very fortunate in Toronto to have the opportunity to study Systema at FightClub. Thanks to Manny, his instructors, and students that attend!

    I met Manny at a seminar my brothers and I attended in Roanoke, VA. Manny is equal amounts Power and Humility along with a gift for teaching. After this weekend I felt like I became a sponge and my relationship with Systema has been growing faster and faster since. If you ever get the honor to train with this man know that you are in the hands of a true master of the art.

    Excellent instructor, excellent students, excellent venue. Emmanuel has a vast amount of knowledge and shares it with abundance. Emmanuel makes the whole learning process so logical, through the use of stories and analogies he speeds the absorption and retention of that knowledge. I can not wait to be back at fight club again and hopefully with my son next time.

    "Systema training at Fight Club has been a reliable friend, always there to give me what I need. Its simplicity belies its depth, and instead of adding tension and accumulating technique, it provides the conditions to let go of the unnecessary. My time here has been a gift, and helped me mature."
