ABOUT 

ABOUT FIGHT CLUB

FightClub is not your traditional martial arts school. We train in Systema, a military-grade fighting system developed in Russia and used by Russian Special Operations Units. We don’t train in a watered-down version either. This is the real deal. The training is honest, focused, and intrinsically designed to work in civilian life. FightClub does not turn you into a backyard mercenary, quite the opposite. Learning this skill-set comes with responsibilities. Irrational violent people are not welcomed here and routed out quickly.

The physical, as well as psychological skills you learn here, can be used in everything from business negotiations to playing hockey.

We don’t train for competition. There is no belt system. We don’t rehearse choreographed dances that could somehow save your neck in a tight situation. The drills we utilize are battle tried, true, and tested. Multiple attackers, ground-work, situational awareness, kicks, breathing control, grabs, improvised weapons, strikes, pain suppression, knife disarming are just a few of the things encompassed in our training program. It is extensive.
