• Impact 360 began in 2005 in Searcy with three students under the name of the Arkansas Martial Arts Academy.
  • The Arkansas Martial Arts Academy changed its name to IMPACT 360 in Fall 2008 to reflect its emphasis on the shaping of the whole person and its inclusion of several programs in addition to martial arts. “Impact’ refers to the effect we want to have on the community and “360” to the holistic interest we have in shaping the whole person.
  • Impact 360 is intentionally building bridges between genders, generations, and people of various educational, racial and socio-economic backgrounds.
  • In May 2009, Impact 360 received its full 501 (c) (3) status as a public charity by the federal government.
  • Currently the organization serves around 150 students and their families, with the main school located in Searcy, AR, and with branches in Augusta, AR, Conway, AR, Mammoth Spring, AR, Memphis, TN and Chillicothe, MO.
  • The youngest student we have had was three years old and the oldest was 73.
  • In 2018, Impact 360 plans to open branches in Houston, TX, Chattanooga, TN, and Atlanta, GA.
  • For the first time in our history, Impact 360 is leasing its own building, an 11,000 square feet facility located at 201 W. Woodruff in Searcy.
