Many of you who know me know that over 20 years ago I helped teach a life changing self-defense course called IMPACT in Los Angeles. I was introduced to this organization by my future wife, Heather, who also became an instructor. I personally witnessed the way this program transformed the lives of the women who took the course and helped them discover their inner power. IMPACT continues this work here in the Bay Area along with many chapters across the country. Although I have not been in a padded suit getting kicked around for a couple decades, I still believe that this program needs to be brought to as many communities as possible. Please support this amazing organization by making a donation today
