February 2018

We hope your 2018 is off to a great start! It's been an exciting time for us - on top of offering our usual public classes, we've been busy bringing IMPACT classes to young people in schools and libraries from Palo Alto to Point Reyes! We're so thrilledl to have these opportunities to help young people find their voice and set healthy boundaries at a young age.

Training Update

Many of you have donated to our training initiative and thanks to your support, we successfully completed the first part of our Suited Instructor training at the beginning of the month. We now have five new suited instructor trainees that will be moving on to the next steps to becoming certified IMPACT instructors. The process is arduous and challenging, and we are are thankful to all of the candidates who have endeavored to try it. But just because it's tough, it doesn't mean we can't have some fun.

Check out our Lead Suited Instructor, Tim, showing us how *NOT* to wear the armor.
