Bluegrass Martial Arts Owner

Hi, I’m Sam Conver.

I KNOW HOW DIFFICULT AND CONFUSING
FINDING A MARTIAL ARTS SCHOOL CAN BE.

I remember when I was a child, feeling uncertainty about beginning martial arts. I wondered if I had what it took to succeed and I wasn’t the most athletic or confident child - quite the opposite. Little did I know that beginning my martial arts journey would be one of the most profound experiences of my life!

I realize I have a huge responsibility as an instructor, but an even bigger one as a role model and mentor. That is the reality of where my Christian Faith and the day to day “play” of Karate intersect. Karate is an adventure full of imagination and wonder.

When I took ownership of our school in 2014, I made a commitment to serving and empowering the community of Louisville by teaching children and adults the confidence, leadership, and fitness skills that can only be achieved through martial arts.

We Share & teach The Same Values You Teach At Home.

Our programs have a strong focus on personal development. The foundations of our morals, values and core character traits are formed in our early years. For this reason, the programs at Bluegrass Martial Arts are an essential way to enhance the growth and personal development of young students of all ages.

A community built around Karate training

Kenpo as practiced at Bluegrass Martial Arts does not come with many of the commonly practiced Buddhist influenced traditions such as meditation, bowing to everything and everyone, or exercises promoting the use of "chi"/"ki" as opposed to the general laws of physics.

This system of martial art has no eastern religious truth claims or faith practices. It is a complete system of self-defense that is coherent with the Christian worldview. 

Bluegrass Martial Arts is dedicated to producing students that are equipped to protect the Sanctity of Life, and represent a community set apart.
