Systema in Schools: Maryland Systema Partners with Local Educational Institutions to Integrate Self-Defense and Personal Safety Lessons into Physical Education Curriculum

[Rockville, MD] – Maryland Systema, a leading martial arts school specializing in the traditional Russian Systema practice combined with modern fitness techniques, is proud to announce a groundbreaking partnership with local educational institutions in Maryland. This collaboration will integrate self-defense and personal safety lessons into the physical education curriculum, equipping students with valuable life skills and enhancing their overall well-being.

Maryland Systema’s innovative approach to martial arts emphasizes a balanced, transformative experience that nurtures both the mind and body. By incorporating Systema into the school curriculum, students will have the opportunity to develop essential self-defense skills, boost their confidence, and foster a greater sense of personal safety and awareness.

“By partnering with local schools, we are taking a significant step towards empowering students with the knowledge and skills necessary to protect themselves and make informed decisions in challenging situations,” said Mike Dorsey, Instructor-In-Training at Maryland Systema. “We believe that self-defense is a vital life skill, and we are committed to making it accessible to as many students as possible.”

The Systema in Schools program will encompass a range of techniques, from basic self-defense moves to advanced strategies for personal safety. Maryland Systema instructors will work closely with physical education teachers to ensure that the curriculum is tailored to the age and skill level of each student group. In addition to physical techniques, the program will also address mental preparedness and situational awareness, which are crucial components of personal safety.

The partnership is set to launch in the spring of 2023, and participating schools will be provided with ongoing support and resources from Maryland Systema, including instructional materials and access to expert instructors. The program’s success will be evaluated through a combination of student surveys, teacher feedback, and key performance indicators to ensure continuous improvement and maximum impact.
