Over the last 14 years of operations, the St. Louis Samurai organization has built a reputation of providing a superior programming experience for our members. We have accomplished this by focusing first on the safety and development of our athletes. We invest in a professional staff and state-of-the-art facility and will continue to ensure all necessary investments are put in place to ensure the safety of our athletes.
