Union UTA is proud to be the home of SAMI UNION, the first SAMI Combat Systems Training school in the western hemisphere!

SAMI Combat Systems (SAMICS) is a collection of standalone combat systems developed and founded by Peter Weckauf.

Each SAMICS Concept is built on a systematic and modular approach and SAMI combat systems training programs follow a highly structured and logical curriculum at the highest professional level for both students and instructors alike.

Our mission is not only to develop technical skills, tactical thinking, awareness and attitude utilizing the principles and techniques of each individual system, but to simultaneously encourage practitioners to follow those principles in order to be in a position to improvise and successfully adapt or interchange techniques depending on the situation.
