Over the past 10 years, Sam has devoted his life to martial arts, leadership, and personal development. He is passionate about changing the lives of those around him and using the benefits of martial arts training to make a difference on a world scale.
After graduating high school at the age of 15, he dove headfirst into his first entrepreneurial and leadership venture by purchasing and operating Super Kicks Karate in Amherst, VA. Over the next 3 years, he grew his school in Amherst to record numbers despite a town population of only 1500 people. He has had the privilege of teaching thousands of students in public and private schools across Virginia. He continues to grow his circle of influence and has recently opened up black belt leadership schools in Madison Heights and Charlottesville, VA.
Sam has a deep love for helping and serving people, his seven siblings, his amazing parents, friends, mentors and coaches.
Sam enjoys being almost any outdoor activity. Mountain biking, skiing, and backpacking are a few of his favorites. He also enjoys teaching, inspiring others, and helping others reach their full potential.
