At FightClub, every class is a master’s class!


Dedicated to teaching Systema Classes in Toronto

Emmanuel has over 40 years of experience in martial arts, 30 of which have been focused on SYSTEMA. 


“Few people have rare knowledge in this world. Among them, even fewer can transmit this knowledge. Fewer still dedicate their lives to refining their knowledge and helping others elevate and fulfill themselves. Emmanuel is one of few, a rare person.”


The Highest Human Good

"It is like having an exceptional mentor and teacher in book format."


"The knowledge we collect and the experience we live with equals the wisdom we can possess." 


"This is a simple, elegant, and straightforward book on the art of living one’s best life as a good human, no matter the field, profession, or circumstances. Its simplicity and depth are a breath of fresh air in today’s abundance of shallow soundbites on personal development and the meaning of life."
