Impact is not just a martial arts or fitness club, it is a lifestyle!

Our programs are built with absolute beginners in mind. Maybe you used to be an athlete and haven’t done anything physical in years. Or maybe you’ve never done sports, have no coordination and have "2 left feet". That’s OK! Our programs work with you wherever you are now, regardless of age, physical fitness.

At Impact Martial Arts, we believe in fostering a positive environment in which kids can grow, develop, and gain self confidence and a positive self image.

We are about more than just self-defense. Our programs provide a safe, friendly, and bully-free environment for everyone.
