“Finding Martial Arts has been an incredible gift for me and my daughter. Being able to train together, practice together, compete together, is an opportunity we haven’t found anywhere else. It’s a perfect family activity!”

student and mom
“Since I put my son into Martial Arts, he’s learned self-discipline and respect; his grades have gotten a lot better, and he’s become stronger and a more mature young man. Martial Arts is the best investment I’ve ever made for my son!”
Cliff McCutchan (Joshua)
"ENJOY SPENDING TIME TOGETHER."
“Since we’ve been working out as a family in Martial Arts, I’ve noticed that my health and happiness have improved tremendously. My children’s confidence has improved, and as a family we enjoy it and enjoy spending time together.”
Jeff Herrin (Jett & Skylar)
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.
Amazing group rates, and really helped my children developed a hobby that they'll carry forward in life.
Fantastic explanations into each movement, clean, and very friendly.
Would recommend for families or anybody looking for a new work out plan or to get into martial arts.
My son loves Sam! Bluegrass will always be family! Thank you!!
Amazing place. Sensei is amazing and knows how to work well with the kids! Would recommend to anyone

"I CAN DEFEND MYSELF."
“Ever since I started Martial Arts, I have the confidence that I can defend myself.”
"MORE CONFIDENT, ENERGETIC, AND HAPPY!"
“Ever since I started Martial Arts training I’ve become more confident, energetic, and happy! If I can do it, you can do it.”
“Nobody bothers me anymore. I LOVE the Martial Arts!”
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.
