Meet Our Master Instructor
Superkicks is a family-based business Sam Wegert started at age 15. Coming from a home school background, seven siblings, and dedicated parents going on 33 years of marriage, Sam is keenly aware of the intricacies of relationships, and the importance of close-knit families. His family background inspired him to infuse his business with the values of character, honesty, discipline, fun, and hard work – all invaluable in any thriving family or business community! He has now been an instructor for over 12 years.
After graduating high school at age 15, Sam dove headfirst into his first entrepreneurial and leadership venture by purchasing and operating Super Kicks Karate in Amherst, Va. He quickly became AFKA certified, becoming one of the youngest chief instructors in the United States. Over the next 3 years, he grew his school in Amherst to record numbers despite a town population of only 1,500. After seeing the success of his first school, he started a second school. It started very small – they met in a hotel – and in only 12 months, grew into one of the most successful martial arts schools in the country.
Sam enjoys almost any outdoor activity, including mountain biking, skiing, and backpacking. He has a passion for teaching and inspiring others to reach their full potential. 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 Charlotte, NC and Charlottesville, VA.
