I have been training with Sensei Sam Seigers since 2015. I have met some amazing people and made great friends . Sensei Sam Seigers is motivating and supportive, and challenges each student to maximize their potential whether they are an adult or child. I’m as fit and flexible as I have been in 20 years and can recommend karate to anyone interested.
