At Impact Bay Area we believe that all people have a right to personal safety, regardless of their financial situation. Named in honor of our founding Director, the Cori Couture Scholarship Fund provides financial assistance for our students who cannot afford the full tuition. We reserve a quarter of the spots in each public class for scholarship recipients. We also offer discounts for not-for-profit organizations to host private classes.

Impact Bay Area does not discriminate on the basis of race, sex, age, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, physical ability, financial circumstances or abuse history.

When a woman knows she can defend herself, that she will never again be a victim, her whole life changes and that of the people around her. By never allowing anyone to hurt her, she has broken the cycle of violence. I believe that, 16 women at a time, we are changing the world!
