Sam was an instructor at Northglenn Judo Club, coached many of the club's national champions, and was a member of the club's coaching staff when it was awarded developmental coaching program of the year by the USA Judo in 2002. Sam was past President of Colorado Judo League, and chaired the USA Judo Coach Commission.
