5 Days Living Systema Camp in Heytesbury Wood, UK

Heytesbury Wood, Heytesbury, Warminster BA12 0HP, United Kingdom

UK Systema Camp

Meet Matt Hill, Systema's owner and instructor. This year Matt's aim is to go deep inside Systema. The health aspects, the healing, the combat, the emotional management, dealing with people and situations. In short, how to better understand yourself, your environment, and those around you. This is where Systema begins. You plant a seed inside and help it to flourish. This is the essence of the Systema approach to self-defence, health, and wellbeing. You can't learn it. You have to live it.

Program

The course is suitable for men and women of all ages and skill levels. You will train by day and night in open and closed environments. Range of work covered: grappling, striking, ground, standing, multiple person scenarios, weapons, crowds.

Daily schedule

  • 07:00 Systema health session. Recovery and preparation. Breathing, stretching, mobilising, and healing of the body, mind, and spirit.
  • 08:30 Breakfast then morning training.
  • 13:00 Lunch then afternoon training.
  • 19:00 Dinner then night training.
  • 22:30 Sleep.

Timings may, of course, vary on certain days. None of the activities are mandatory. You may choose to rest during certain sessions. A full day of training may seem like a lot. However, the unique methodology of Systema training will leave you feeling relaxed, whole, and invigorated. Stresses and strains will fall away leaving you with greater levels of physical and emotional health and wellbeing

You will get a lot of information during the course of the week. You need time to process and absorb it. It is also hugely beneficial to have the time to just sit and reflect, taking the time out for yourself.

Key topics to be covered

  • Breathwork: for health, psychological state, and self-defence.
  • Health: learn to use the principles of Systema to improve overall health and wellbeing.
  • Movement: enhance and free your movement and responses in any terrain and situation.
  • Strikes: working to find the relaxed heaviness that allows for free, fluid, and deep strike work from any body part.
  • Tactics: how to use positioning, terrain, and obstacles.
  • Awareness: the outdoors is the best place to open your senses and improve your level of awareness.

Learn new skills

There will also be time in the schedule to learn some new skills. They are of course optional. Among others you’ll learn:

  • Kit packing: lean kit packing is a skill. Learn what is essential and non-essential for five days in the woods. A full kit list is provided.
  • Fire lighting: probably the key survival skill. Feel the deep sense of satisfaction of being able to get a fire going without matches.
  • Navigation: a dying art. Learn the basics of navigation by map and compass.
  • Tarp and hammock: ever spent a night under the stars? This is the ideal time to try sleeping in a hammock or bivvi-bag under a tarp with the forest as your walls and the stars as your roof. Of course, you can stick to a tent!
