IMPACT teaches full force self defense as well as verbal conflict resolution techniques to women, teens and members of the LGBTQ community. 100% of our students report that they feel significantly better able to deal with an attack after taking our classes. I can say from personal experience this has been the most IMPACTful training for my self-confidence and sense of safety. And it was true for everyone in my class.

I want every woman I know to be empowered by it. I also feel safer (and statistics prove it) knowing there are other IMPACT trained women out and about in the world.

In today’s climate this program is particularly important. At IMPACT we believe safety is a right, not a privilege. We do not turn anyone away regardless of their financial situation. Please help me raise $2,600.00. This would be enough to providefull scholarships to 4 participants who otherwise could not afford to take the class. 

Please click the orange “DONATE" button in the upper right corner to contribute. I’m so thankful for your donation of any amount. I can’t tell you how much it means to me to have your support in this!

Thank you for donating to an amazing cause!
