SAMICS is an abbreviation for SAMI Combat Systems and is the umbrella term used to describe the collection of individual combat systems (or SAMICS Concepts) developed by Peter Weckauf and the SAMI Institute. These SAMI Combat Systems include:
Open-hand based Systems
All SAMICS Concepts are structured into a modular level system. Generally this consists of Levels 1-6 for students with Level 6 being a “black belt” and a corresponding instructor grading from Levels 1-12 with Level 12 being a “Head Instructor”.
While all SAMICS Concepts share an underlying structure and didactic methodology and many training ideas are common to all training schedules each system has its own specific elements unique to itself.
Focus on these unique elements within each system coupled with easy interchangeability within SAMICS Concepts allows practioners to achieve a level of martial arts expertise difficult to find elsewhere.
For example: The Knife Fighting Concept system focuses 100% on training either with, or in defense against, a knife aiming for expertise in this discipline. Nevertheless, due to the common origins, methodology and training techniques inherent within SAMICS, practioners will find cross-over into other weapon-based SAMICS Concepts or even an empty-hand system like Panantukan Concept seamless and easy.
SAMICS Concepts are instructed in around 40 countries by certified and affiliated SAMICS instructors, training centers and training academies and are available for self-learning for anyone with an internet connection through our SAMI International Online Training platform: sami-international.com
