Our History

Grand Master Jim Sams founded The SaJiDo Academy over 35 years ago. Martial art is focused on personal development and service to others above self. These essential life lessons are taught with practical combat-proven martial arts training in a welcoming environment.

Grand Master Sams began his martial arts career in 1963 while serving with the US Air Force and later served the Air/Security Police(Blue Beret). In addition to normal police duties, he was a SAT team leader in South Vietnam (Combat SAT Team) and the Southeastern Theater of Operations.

Grand Master Sams has been very fortunate to have studied, taken classes, attended seminars, or given seminars with some of the finest martial artists in the world today. He has been recognized twice in Black Belt Magazine and is listed in Karate International Magazine. He has been inducted into the Karate College Instructors  Hall of Fame.  He is credited with developing one of the few systems to be certified in the last twenty years in the USA. The result is SaJiDo – a world martial arts system.

SaJiDo has been recognized by Grand Masters such as Dr. Jerry Beasley, Joe Lewis, Michael DePasquale, Bill "Superfoot" Wallace, Renzo Gracie. The art follows principles similar to those of Bruce Lee. Students are encouraged to use what works ideally for them and create the best possible solution to any problem. They have used these Life principles to their advantage in combat situations as well as in professional environments.

SaJiDo is a powerhouse that embraces kicking, punching, jumping, blocking, grappling, weapons training, or using the environment around you. SaJiDo trains both the mind and body, emphasizing the development of mental and physical control. Join us for fun and exercise appropriate for all ages.
