With an amazing approach to what I call “common thread” training, they have taken my training, teaching, and skill level to new heights. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND training with SAMI, either in person or in their online learning platform. Quite frankly, there is no one better. You will be very happy you did. 😀

Over the last 20 years, over 50.000 people have joined our trainings and courses. I does not matter if you are a beginner or an advanced student, we always support you to reach your goals. In addition, we offer all SAMI students complimentary access to our exclusive member-only Facebook group where you can ask questions and receive help from fellow SAMI students and/or our instructors.
Of course, this depends on your interests and preferences, and also a little bit on your previous knowledge. As a beginner, Krav Maga is probably a good place to start.
Since we rate our weapon systems primarily as martial arts and self-defense, the focus is primarily on defense against weapons. The handling and the knowledge about the way of the weapon also allows us to assess it better in defense against it.
Yes, that is possible. However, many training scenarios relate to the everyday work of authorities, security services, the police and special commands. For instructor training, however, we need a character certificate.
This depends heavily on your personal requirements and previous knowledge. However, since a lot happens in the mental area, especially in self-defense, after each unit you may already have learned something that can be helpful in a situation. If you train regularly 2-3 times a week, you will notice the first technical success after just 2-3 months.
