Welcome to Suave Fuerza
Suave Fuerza began in 2013 as a martial arts and yoga school in the ancient South American city of Cusco, Peru. Offering the disciplines of Systema (Russian Martial Art), Brazilian jiujitsu, and yoga, we focus on increasing awareness and wellbeing through mind-body connection, the integration of movement and breath, and functional whole body health.
Our intention is to create safe space for honest inquiry, dedicated practice, and genuine community, while promoting the principles of humility, respect and authenticity in a martial arts and yoga environment. We are pleased to be expanding globally through classes, workshops and retreats!
Systema is a non-competitive martial art based on ancient Russian training methods that evolved into the practices of the Spetznaz Russian Special Forces. It combines intuitive combat with breath work and techniques to better understand one’s self and release fear.
Yoga is an awareness-based practice that primarily combines movement, breath techniques and meditation. Through a regular yoga practice, we can improve not only our physical body but also increase our mental and emotional wellbeing.
