All anyone in the martial arts has to say is “Superfoot” and instantly the image of Bill Wallace emerges. This martial arts champion became a superstar in the ring as he mesmerized the audience with his amazing kicks.

Bill “Superfoot” Wallace began his martial arts career in judo, however following an injury to his leg he took up karate. Although he was unable to use his right leg in karate competition, Wallace doubled down on training his left leg.

His lightening fast left leg kick was clocked in excess of 60 mph. A Tae Kwon Do and Shorin-ryu stylist, “Superfoot” was most famous for his awesome high roundhouse and hook kicks.

Wallace captured virtually every major event including the U.S. Championships (3 times), the USKA Grand Nationals (3 times), and the Top Ten Nationals (2 times). Black Belt Magazine twice named Wallace “Competitor of the Year “ and “Man of the Year.”

Wallace retired as the undefeated Professional Karate Association (PKA) Middleweight Champion. That victory marked his 23rd consecutive win, and the end of an illustrious 15-year career in tournament and full contact fighting.


Joe Lewis is an American kickboxer and point karate fighter who was extremely successful in the ring in the 1960s and 1970s. He was voted the greatest fighter in karate history two different times and has earned the titles of “United States Heavyweight Kickboxing Champion” and “World Heavyweight Karate Champion,” and “United States National Black Belt Kata Champion.”

In Okinawa, while serving in the United States Marine Corps, Joe studied Shorin-ryu Karate. He earned his black belt in a mere seven months.

Upon returning to the United States, Joe began his tournament career. Lewis reigned as The U.S. Nationals grand champion from 1966 until 1969. During that time Joe Lewis competed against champions like Chuck Norris.

In 1967 and 1968, he studied Jeet Kune Do privately with Bruce Lee. While training with Lee, Lewis tested Lee’s theories of fighting in the ring, and Lewis was unbeatable.

Joe Lewis was voted the greatest karate fighter of all time by the top fighters and promoters in 1983. Gene Lebell credited Joe as the person who “brought us full-contact karate.”


Two of the greatest iconic fighters have had their methods combined to form the Superfoot-Joe Lewis Martial Arts Systems. This unique system merges the celebrated fighting styles of Bill Wallace and the late Joe Lewis into some of the world’s most effective martial arts techniques.

These skills serve as the foundation of the Superfoot-Joe Lewis Martial Arts Systems program, and part of the content of our Tuesday evening Kenpo Karate class. It includes kicking from karate and taekwondo, punching forms from boxing, exercises to improve strength and flexibility, and workouts to develop greater speed, endurance and mobility.

Kickboxing is the perfect energizing workout. In addition to the physical training, the system incorporates leadership and mentoring, creating an ongoing learning environment designed to produce the next generation of champions.

Dear Friend,

If you’re like me, you know that the current research says exercise not only helps us look and feel our best, it helps us stay a lot healthier.

We all know that we SHOULD exercise, but the problem with most exercise programs is that they are just too BORING! Running or even walking mile after mile, or lifting the same weight 10 – 20 – 30 times just gets old fast . . . AND it usually hurts!

Our Champion Kickboxing program is totally different. 

Every movement has a purpose – a purpose that might one day save your life! Some of our students have actually been able to defend themselves from dangerous attacks, while most are grateful just knowing how to avoid trouble.

Hi, my name is Sensei Samuel Conver.

I’m very proud to say that HUNDREDS of adults in the Louisville area have a BLAST in every class while learning awesome skills in kickboxing and watching the pounds melt away.

Most frequently asked questions and answers

Our martial arts program covers every component of fitness. You will improve cardio, strength, agility, flexibility and endurance areas of fitness through our classes.

It truly is a ‘total’ body workout!

There is no other workout that is so complete and engagin!

One of the best parts of our program is that every student is treated as an individual, and will progress at their ow rate.

Each student’s progress isn’t measured against other students, but rather against their own previous performance!

So even students that aren’t as physically fit as the star quaterback on the football team, can have a wonderful experience in our program, and become stronger, fitter and more flexible.

The great thing about our program is, everyone is treated as an individual.

We have students as young as 3 or 4 and as old as 94.

Since every person is different, the best (and really ONLY) way to see if our program is a good fit for you, is to take advantage of one of our WEB SPECIALS and try it for yourself!

I’m 100% confident you’ll have a great time!

Our program is FUNDAMENTALLY different!

In a typical ‘exercise’ program, you may be getting a good workout, but you’re really not ‘learning’ much of anything.

Our programs will not only keep you excited and motivated because of the  high energy nature of our instruction that always keeps the class fresh, and interesting but you’ll also be learning real practical skills that could one day save your life.

Our students find this learning process incredibly engaging, and challenges them to truly “master” their technique. I guess this is the reason our students stick with our program while previous workouts have failed them.

We know how busy your life is, so our program is designed for the ‘busy’ person! Students can make exciting progress by attending classes an average of twice a week.

Some students will want to attend more classes, and that’s great, we have options for that!

Really, the only way to know if our program is a good fit for you and/or your family is to try it for yourself!

We have some GREAT WEB SPECIALS, so you can try the program with no strings attached, and see with your own 2 eyes how the program will benefit you or your whole family.

I go there almost every week, a good sensei who is great with kids and talks with his students to get them to understand what their doing, he does a variety of different classes like weapons, hand targets and Judo. Overall a good place with a friendly sensei.

Sam is the embodiment of the martial arts. A true master and black belt and life, not just in the dojo. You won't find a better teacher either.
My son has attended karate classes here off & on for several years, & is currently taking private lessons. Sam is an excellent teacher with lots of patience. Highly recommended!

I can say nothing but how awesome this place is! I have studied here in two stints before life getting in the way, but I can think of no other karate system that teaches to the level of this place. BMA really has it all no matter what you are looking for, be it casual or serious. Definitely returning if I can!

I’ve known the owner/instructor, Sam, since 2007. Not only is he the best martial arts instructor I’ve personally been involved with, but he is also a great family man with good morals. He eats, sleeps, and breathes martial arts and is a wealth of knowledge. Most importantly, he is humble and never belittles people. If you’re interested in learning real self defense and being part of a family environment, then this is the place.

Although many people think the martial arts are just about fighting, the truth is that the physical “kicking and punching” are really just the tools that I use to teach the more important, and MUCH more valuable lessons about yourself.
