The name is International Heroes Institute of Mixed Martial Arts, iHiomma for short. It is an academy of some sort for Martial Art students, old and young. The main Academy is situated in the heart of Portharcourt, Rivers State. The academy also have branches scattered at other locations in the country.

I was invited by the soft-spoken Founder and Life Coach of the iHiomma, Coach Hero Samson, for a little tete-a-tete. A strong willed young man, whose live for martial arts have won him both local and international awards. After hanging out him, I got to learn a few things about his motivation and why he has a lot of clients whom he train to be professionals in  martial art fighting.

This was what he said of his academy;

Our major aim for the practice of this combat sport is for self-discipline. I use this opportunity to advice our youth, both young and old to occupy and engage themselves in useful activities like enrolling into iHIOMMA in order to be agents who would eradicate and obliterate anti-social and criminal activities in our society.

Another striking thing about the academy, though I visited at a time when they were not in session, the Founder’s desire to ensure that the health of his students are sound, even as they learn martial arts. Among his students are those as young as 5years old and those over 40 years old.

Aside from being a master and multiple award winner of a variety of martial arts types like taekwando, Judo, kick-boxing and others; he is also a fitness trainer for those who love to look trim, fresh and young.


At the moment his Academy is taking in mew entrants who are also interested in martial arts, as a contact sport. They also take individuals on fitness training, weight loss, Tommy reduction & Six-packs. Registration is in progress. Remember, as a client, trainee or student, your health is a priority.
