We're Hiring Instructors!

IMPACT instructors provide opportunities for people to experience victory over fear and trauma. We teach life-saving skills designed to build confidence and safety. We work with an exclusive team of instructors who believe that self-defense is about much more than physical strikes, and are committed to helping others access their own power. Our graduates describe the experience as ”life changing,” “empowering,” and as an important part of their trauma healing.
