Set in the centre of the stunning Swedish forests and lakes, the course will focus on training of mind and body to find your freedom. Breath, relax, train and enjoy camp life in the swedish forest. All inclusive transport from Oslo airport and meals.

INSTRUCTOR: Ryo Onishi from Systema Osaka Japan

Regularly visiting both headquarters in Moscow and Toronto and hosting Mikhail and Vladimir in Japan, Ryo has trained Systema for about 20 years after practicing japanese martial arts . He is renowned for his ability to convey the inner work taught by the masters.


A bit about the course: You will immerse yourself in training in the forests for 6-7 hours per day or more.  You will be surprised to find that rather than wearing you out this will restore you to an even greater level of physical and mental health and well-being.  The training is unique, blending ancient practices of martial, physical and mental training and well-being in a stunning natural setting.  Our DNA recognizes the forest as home. We have spent much of our time there and belong just as much as any animal or plant. The forest is healing and restful to our body, mind and soul.

The course is:

  • SMALL GROUP so lots of personal attention – approx 1:25 ratio instructor to student. This is a unique opportunity to immerse in more than 20 hours of training with one of the most sought after instructors on the circuit.
  • ALL INCLUSIVE Transportation from the airport to and from the camp and food. Important: You will need to bring your own tarp or tent and sleeping bag. If you wish to try the tarp experience, (see pics below) demonstrations and help will be given to ensure a comfy nights sleep.
  • COMPLETE RANGE of training including timeless health practices, weapons (including natural and improvised) training, empty handed, multiple attack and all scenarios in between
  • ALL TERRAIN training in the forest and fields and practice by day and night,
  • SUITABLE FOR ALL LEVELS Ideal for beginners and advanced students due to the progressive nature of the training course building from basic concepts to advanced levels.

Accommodation:You can choose to bring a tarp and hammock or sleep on the ground under a tarp, or your bring own tent to sleep in, or use one of the cabins (limited space – 5 beds- available in the cabins still need a rollmat and sleeping bag). Since it is not a camping site it is usually easier to find a place to set up a hammock and a tarp!

What do I need to

The kit list is very basic and will be sent to all participants prior to the course. Put it this way. You will be able to carry it in on your back.

Below is a video that explains the kit required and how to pack it.

Breathe deeply and relax: You do not have to do all of the sessions. You can chose to watch and study or just relax if you are tired or want to rest. There is also time set aside during the day to bathe, swim, douse and rest.

Food. All of the food is healthy and nutritious. The food will be vegetarian, free from gluten and milk. We all take turns in cooking and preparing meals. Everyone gets involved in the whole camp experience. If you are not used to preparing food don’t worry, this is another element of the training to look forward to!
