Maxim Franz: Systema Hand-to-Hand Seminar Day 1

  • Mid-South Fencer's Club 125 North Gregson Street Durham, NC, 27701 United States (map)

Join us on Jan 30-31 for this rare opportunity to train with Senior Systema Instructor Maxim Franz. 

A former Spetsnaz operative, Max has been training under Master Vladimir Vasiliev at Russian Martial Art HQ for more than 15 years, and is one of the foremost instructors of the art, worldwide.

You may recognize him from his popular appearance on Spike TV's Deadliest Warrior: Green Beret vs Spetsnaz show, now legendary on YouTube.

To say that Max is "tough" is a laughable understatement. Moreover, he is a skilled instructor who brings as much power and efficiency to his teaching as he does his fighting style. 

This time, he will be leading a full weekend of training on Systema hand-to-hand combat perspectives - including open-handed strikes, kicks, takedowns, and much, much more.

Owing to his high demand on the international circuit, this will be Max's first seminar in North Carolina in five years.
So don't miss this rare chance to train with one of the very best. As usual for NC events, event number will be limited to ensure individual attention and quality of training.
