The Jedi community is an online growing selection of unique personalities. Star Wars fans of all shapes and sizes can participate in our saber classes.

Our academy is recognized by several of the established online Jedi organizations. We are often invited to local Star Wars themed events, May the 4th celebrations, Comic cons, Cosplay, and Jedi meet up retreats.

We’ll help you develop remarkable Saber skills while increasing your STRENGTH, ENDURANCE, and FLEXIBILITY. Imagine rediscovering all of the Wonder you felt when you first saw STAR WARS!


We offer a ranking process to becoming a Jedi that includes moving through levels of Padawan, Initiate, Apprentice, then taking the Trials to become a Jedi yourself!

At the Louisville Jedi Academy, you’ll learn the same amazing techniques and tricks used by the movie stunt actors, but in an INJURY-FREE, safe, and super-positive environment!

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, too.

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 safe and exciting Jedi Academy  is totally different. Every movement has a purpose–a purpose! 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 saber skills at the Jedi Academy 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 through our classes. There is no other workout that is so complete and engaging.

It truly is a total body workout!

One of the best parts of our program is that every student is treated as an individual and progresses at their own 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 quarterback of a football team can have a wonderful experience in our program and become stronger, fitter, and more flexible.

The great thing about our program is that 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 our high-energy instruction that always keeps 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 your family is to try it out!

We have some GREAT WEB SPECIALS, so you can try the program with no strings attached and see for yourself 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.
