Monday January 13th was a day of great loss.
Alexei Proger suddenly passed away.
A young man of only 35 years of age, Alexei has been a much loved and respected Systema instructor, teaching many classes for adults and kids at Systema HQ school Toronto for over 10 years. Very athletic and skilled in the martial art and gifted in teaching, always positive and caring, a truly kind and bright person, Alexei has been a great friend.
It is a very unexpected and painful loss.
In addition to teaching Systema, Alexei studied art at the Sheridan College, Ontario. A talented artist, he has produced many unique and beautiful pieces displayed at art exhibits.
A scholarship fund has been created by the family in Alexei’s name to help other art students at the Sheridan College: http://www.sheridancollege.ca/donors/giving-to-sheridan/memorial-or-tribute-giving/memorial-donation-form.aspx
