No Class August 12th

I’ve had a busy travel schedule this summer and one more time, our regular class will be cancelled this Monday, August 12th. I will be back again next week and our normal weekly schedule will resume. This is my last trip for the summer so weekly class should meet regularly for the foreseeable future. As alway, I encourage you all to continue practicing on your own between classes. If you have questions, write them down and bring them in to our weekly training. Hope to see you all at class when I return.


No Class this Monday

Due to my travel schedule this summer there will be no Systema class this Monday, July 28th. Regular class will be held again on Monday, August 5th. I encourage everyone to continue training on their own every day. Even if you’ve only been to one class there is already more than enough for you to continue your practice.

Hope to see you all for more training when I return!

Two Weeks Off

Due to my summer travel schedule, we will not have our regular Monday night Systema class for the next two weeks. Please make a note of it. We’ve had a few new students recently who may not have subscribed to the website yet, so let them know if you see them.

My apologies to anyone who doesn’t get the news and shows up Monday night. I look forward to training with you all when I get back. I hope you continue training on your own during the break. There are endless ways to work on your fundamentals, and ideally that work should be happening every day anyway.

See you in two weeks! :)


No Class this Monday

Best Martial Arts Institute is closed forĀ  Memorial Day weekend. There will be no Systema class tonight, Monday 5/27. Regular class will resume next Monday on June 3rd. Take this opportunity to develop your own self-directed training and make it a part of your every day routine. Hope to see you all next week!

Class Cancelled due to Snow!

We have twelve inches already! That’s a lot of snow for Eugene, and things are liable to be pretty messy out there tonight. Best Martial Arts Institute is closed due to the weather and dangerous road conditions. Monday night Systema class will be cancelled. Hope to see you all next week.

Stay safe out there, and keep training!

Monday Class Cancelled

Due to the holiday, BMAI is closed on Monday. Class this week will be cancelled. Consider it an opportunity to keep training on your own! Remember, the bulk of your work should be happening on your own anyway. Class is a way to tune things up, test yourself, give deeper insights, and help direct the course of your training. But training should be happening consistently throughout the week. I’ll see you next week when our regular Monday night class resumes.

Winter Workshop Reminder

2015-06-20 14.30.29I will be teaching a Winter Workshop tomorrow, Sunday, February 3rd from 1-5pm. The title for the workshop is Transparent Mind – Transparent Body. The topic will be developing meditation practice through stillness and motion. I hope you will be able to join us for this all new workshop.

We will be focusing on meditation through both sitting and movement-based practice. Complementary skills will be taught in multiple modalities, facilitating a deeper understanding of meditation, movement, and action. The workshop is open to all. No prior experience is necessary. The contents are intended to help anybody understand themselves better, see more clearly, resolve inner conflicts, and experience the dropping away of mind and body. This work is for anyone who wants to develop a meditation practice or deepen an existing practice, whatever their art or focus may be.

See the flier here with detailed information, and please share it with anybody who might be interested in attending.
