Martial Arts & Fitness for the whole family

Established since 1978 and headed by chief instructor Hanshi Alan Gibson 8th Dan who has over 53 years martial arts experience, SAMA Organisation has become the largest professional karate and kickboxing group in the U.K. with over 14,000 students training weekly.

We teach separate classes for adults, youths and kids. As well as teaching in leisure centres, schools and other venues, we also have a full time, fully kitted out training centre in Brighton.

All our classes are PAY-AS-YOU-GO

Unlike many martial arts groups, boot camps or gyms etc all of our classes are pay-as-you-go. This gives our parents and students great flexibility when it comes to attending classes. If for any reason you or your child are unable to make the lesson i.e due to sickness, away on holiday or just can't make it one week you have the reassurance that you are not losing your money.

SAMA instructors are fully qualified

All of our instructors hold first aid and Health and safety certification. They follow a F.E.K.O endorsed child protection policy, also all instructors have been enhanced disclosure code 3 police checked which is the highest check available for working with children.

SAMA is fully recognised & insured
