IMPACT Bay Area is dedicated to providing personal safety skills and confidence to communities most at risk of violence and harassment in our society. Our four-day LGBTQ course was developed by experienced LGBTQ IMPACT staff by studying attacks that commonly occur against the community, and effective skills for self-defense in those scenarios. We explore issues related to fear and violence in society and students get the opportunity to create their own custom self-defense scenarios. Our instructors create an inclusive, safe, and supportive environment for students to learn these techniques and life skills. IMPACT sets a high standard for a trauma-informed and culturally competent curriculum and staff.IMPACT requires a minimum class size to run our public programs. LGBTQ Basics is usually scheduled once a year. While this class is not currently on the schedule, please express interest by sending us an email at: email@example.com
