Impact Martial Arts: Established on September 1, 2010
Mr. Lance Leach (owner/instructor): Mr. Leach started out in the martial arts in 1979 at the age of 9 years old, attending classes at the Chuck Norris Karate Studio in Norfolk Virginia. He progressed through the ranks and received his 1st degree (United Fighting Arts Federation) black belt on July 16, 1983. Mr. Leach continued his training through high school teaching for CNKS until 1990 when he enrolled at ECPI college of technology and earned an associates degree in computer electronics repair. He continued his martial arts training and teaching from 1991 to 1997 as the chief instructor of CNKS. In 1997 Mr. Leach was hired as an instructor for Mr. Norris’ Kick Drugs Out of America program where he taught martial arts as a character building program to middle school students. In 2010 Mr. Leach visited Kerrville TX where he decided the Texas hill country would be a prefect place to open Impact Martial Arts and continue his passion for teaching martial arts and character building.
