Impact 360 Memphis began as a branch of Impact 360 based out of Searcy Arkansas. We had the opportunity to establish this branch when one of the principles of Impact 360 in Searcy (Morgan Ikeorha – a 4th degree black belt in Taekwondo), relocated to Memphis. She is joined by Don Adams, who has been studying Krav Maga the last 3 years in Searcy to help establish a Memphis base. Impact 360 Memphis focuses on self-defense primarily teaching awareness and avoidance mixed with physical defenses using Krav Maga techniques, enhanced with influences from Taekwondo, and Karate.
Impact 360 began as the Arkansas Martial Arts Academy (AMAA) in 2005 with only five students. Within a year we grew to over 100. We continue to grow daily in our quest to help others.
Our focus at Impact 360 is the entire person. We are a purpose driven school interested in developing the physical, mental, and social aspects of the person. Our school focuses on values important to having a healthy life and being able to support oneself and others as well as developing healthy relationships with friends, family, and coworkers. We are partnered with several counseling agencies, doctors, schools, and teachers in our communities to assist with any needs a student may have.
Our instructors are committed to their students training and development. All our instructors are National Champions, Junior Olympic Champions, Regional Champions, and State Champions.
We do not focus on sport as a school but if a student chooses to do so we will help train and prepare him/her for competition. Self-defense is our martial focus. While we do teach the forms and the artistic side of martial arts, practical self-defense techniques are required for every rank.
In Arkansas Impact 360 is a 501 (c) 3 Non-Profit organization built to empower our community. Impact 360 Memphis will soon be following the same path here in Tennessee.
