BILL “SUPERFOOT” WALLACE
All anyone in the martial arts has to say is “Superfoot” and instantly the image of Bill Wallace emerges. This martial arts champion became a superstar in the ring as he mesmerized the audience with his amazing kicks while simultaneously devastating his opponents.
Standing 5-feet 11 and supporting a powerful physique Wallace was a formidable foe. His lightening fast left leg kick was clocked in excess of 60 mph. A Tae Kwon Do and Shorin-ryu stylist, Wallace was a double threat in the ring. He not only could knock-out his opponents with his powerful hands; but “Superfoot” was most famous for his awesome high roundhouse and hook kicks.
Wallace began his martial arts career in judo, however following an injury to his leg he took up karate. Although he was unable to use his right leg in karate competition, Wallace prevailed and dominated the point-tournament circuit.
Wallace captured virtually every major event including the U.S. Championships (3 times), the USKA Grand Nationals (3 times), and the Top Ten Nationals (2 times). Black Belt Magazine twice named Wallace “Competitor of the Year “ and “Man of the Year.”
Next Wallace took on the fledging sport of full contact karate. “Superfoot” retired as the undefeated Professional Karate Association (PKA) Middleweight Champion after defeating Robert Biggs. That victory marked his 23rd consecutive win, and was the final round in an illustrious 15-year career in tournament and full contact fighting.
In addition to his fame in the ring, Wallace has also appeared in numerous movies: A Force Of One with Chuck Norris, Kill Point with Cameron Mitchell, Continental Divide & Neighbors with John Belushi and Protector with Jackie Chan.
Wallace has a bachelor’s degree in physical education and a master’s degree in kinesiology (the study of human movement). His insight on proper stretching techniques and the use of body mechanics in the ring makes “Superfoot” one of the most sought after seminar speakers and teachers in the nation.
