Freedom, Power & Happiness

Asia’s first international seminar since 2019

For the last 3 years, the world has been in pandemonium. Compulsion, uncertainty and depression have been a major theme since the global lockdowns restrained most of the planet. This seminar is definitely a post-pandemic checkpoint for all of us on our martial journey.

“FREEDOM, POWER & HAPPINESS: A 3-day fundamental course in movement and martial art” is much more than that, however. It is a course to give you a map to help you as you continue to explore and interpret martial art, creative movement and the values that drive us in these disciplines.

Systema Singapore is pleased to welcome Vladimir Zaikovsky back and this time to present a concise blueprint of his life’s study.

Freedom, Power… and Happiness?

From creative artists to competitive sportsmen, individuals who pursue skill and emotive expression share an understanding that the cultivation of the psyche has a measurable impact on their performance and output.

In this seminar you will get the opportunity to see how improving key components of a healthy psyche produces tangible changes in your physical body. By examining our experience of perception, emotions, will, and intent and learning practices to tend the “garden of the mind”, you will discover how to access deep and powerful sources of power to drive your movements and generate responses unfettered by the chatter of your mind.

This process of enhancing our perception, deepening our souls and silencing the mind forms the foundation of a happy person. We call this practice martial art.

27 hours of training

After returning from a 5-day seminar with Vladimir in France, we are convinced that 3 days is the minimum time necessary to capture the content.

Let’s be clear, 3 days will not yield a comprehensive coverage of Vladimir’s work – but it does provide enough time to present a basic structure of practice from which we can expand our study outwards. It also provides a mindfulness of the depth of the subject, allowing you to establish a sufficiently concrete base to build a path forward upon.

For those able to attend the extra Special Classes, they have been specially themed to aid in the process to maximize our benefit from the seminar itself, though not strictly necessary.

Suitable for everyone

This seminar is mainly targeted at martial artists, movement artists and those seeking a tangible means of self-mastery. The seminar is suitable for people of all levels, but we do make the recommendation for those completely new to any art form of practice to attend all the special classes aside from the seminar as the special classes help to provide a fundamental skillset from which to understand the seminar topics and how to apply them to your art.

Seminar etiquette

Our seminars are held in a friendly manner – if you have a question or request, don’t be afraid to ask your training partner or the instructors for help and we will do what we can to help. All we ask is that you help to maintain a respectful environment for the other attendees and a culture of helping each other to learn.

Please dress in comfortable and modest clothing that you do not mind getting ruined – it could happen! We also recommend bringing a change of clothes.

During the seminar days, the break might not be long enough to head out to buy food or drinks. We recommend bringing some drinks and snacks sufficient to keep your energy levels up. Eating extremely large meals is not recommended.
