Meet Norm Lane
Owner at K5 Academy of Martial Arts in Springfield, MO

Head Instructor

Growing up Mr. Lane was always fascinated with the martial arts from watching old reruns of the Green Hornet with Bruce Lee to Kung Fu with David Carradine. 

He sought out different martial arts instructors throughout his younger years, training in everything from Karate, Kung Fu, Tae Kwon Do, and more. “Whoever started a school in my hometown or nearby town, it didn’t matter I was there.” 

It wasn’t until he got to college where his dreams would start to come to fruition. He started training in Okinawan Goju-Ryu where he earned his first black belt. 

But it wasn’t until 1991 when driving by a karate school, he saw The Perfect Weapon poster in a window, stopped, went in, and signed up - never looking back at another art. 

Mr. Lane has spent a number of years in Kenpo, but hadn’t found a home until meeting Mr. Speakman in 2007 and later signing a franchise agreement in 2012. Now that Mr. Lane has found a home, he is fully devoted to Kenpo 5.0 and its future in the martial arts world.
