Welcome to the official website for Systema Scotland based in Edinburgh and founder Jamie Robson. We teach this ancient life art that dates back to the 10th century, as handed down by Vladimir Vasiliev. Systema is a holistic process of human cultivation, addressing every aspect of our being, including the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual. Training promotes qualities like strength, courage and humility. These positive energies dissolve blockages like fear, anger and pride. When you are holistically happy and healthy, when you Know Thy Self, you are free.
In 2007, Systema founders Mikhail Ryabko and Vladimir Vasiliev were invited to demonstrate the Russian Martial Art at the United Nations Headquarters in Manhattan, New York. The UN representatives described Systema as the most humane martial art of the modern times.
Jamie Robson was the first instructor in Scotland to be fully certified by Vladimir Vasiliev and first to open a professional full-time academy in Scotland. He has a close relationship with Systema HQ in Toronto.
