Use Real Weapons. Weapons of the Samurai, Kung Fu and Karate masters, and the warriors of ancient Indonesia are all part of the Monday evening Kenpo Karate class.

Every two months there is a focused study of a different weapon. We take a deep dive study on the Escrima/Kali Stick fighting patterns, both single and double. We learn interactive combat drills with the Bo, both the long and short staff. Then we cover the techniques from a school of Iaido using the Samurai Sword!

We finish the year with shorter studies on the traditional karate weapons of Okinawa, the Tonfa, Nunchaku, and the Sai. Come join us at Bluegrass Martial Arts on Monday evenings to unlock your inner Ninja!


As we grow older, we naturally lose muscle mass making the dynamic powerful movements we could do so easily before, now take much more effort. There is a greater risk of injury, and even minor aches and pains take much longer to recover.

The good news is that weapon training can continue into your older years with the same intensity it did when you first started your weapon training. In most classical martial arts systems, as a person aged and had to accommodate moving slower and without the same strength they once had, they would discover a new passion investing more time in the training of classical weapons. Weapon training will increasing your STRENGTH, ENDURANCE, and MOBILITY

Imagine feeling young again with all the strength and confidence you had at 18 . . . but even more dangerous with a stick in your hand!


Our classes are filled with smiling faces because the training is FUN. No matter how tough your day has been Monday evening Weapons class will lift up your spirit and empower you.

This is the perfect energizing martial art training for you to release plenty of your days stress and recharge your battery.

You will make new friends and build great social skills because a lot of the practice is partner oriented. Everything is done with your safety and respect for each other in mind.

You will feel great after every class.

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 lean and mean martial arts fitness 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 Jiu-Jitsu and watching the pounds melt away.

Entering the training area late or while a class is in session is highly disruptive, therefore, visitors that show up late will be asked to come back at another time. It is also recommended that you contact an instructor before your visit.

All of our martial arts fitness classes run from 50 to 60 minutes of activity from warm up to cool down. The length of time you remain in the program depends on you and your goals.

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.
