Master Lance Meltzer
IMPACT instructor, 9th Degree Black Belt
Lance has earned his 9th Degree Black Belt in Kenpo (senior certified master instructor), as well as a certified senior instructor in Jeet Kune Do (Progressive Fighting Systems), Haganah (Israeli Martial Arts), Israeli tactical knife fighting & ground survival. Training students from the age of 14 to 80 isn't easy but our Impact system/Integrated FIght System/Core Kenpo makes it easier to give each student what they need. Main Street Martial Arts also has trained many law enforcement personnel in weapon disarms and anti-terrorist tactics.
In 1999 he started Napa’s first transported after school karate program. Over the years, Main Street Martial Arts has made a huge difference in many children’s lives to have them be able to pursue martial arts in an after-school program. “We get them to classes, you pick them up after class is over.” Many of the kids have earned their Black Belt in our after school program. Main Street Martial Arts also offers summer camps to give parents a safe and fun place to have their kids during part of the summer break.
A retired Chiropractor, Lance, and his wife, Darlene are the founders of Nature’s Way Montessori in Napa. He teaches the adult Integrated Fighting Systems/IMPACT. Lance has also been a lead facilitator for the Napa County Office of Education’s ROPES COURSE.
