IMPACT Bay Area's policies allow flexibility for students while helping us reliably fill our classes to support our Mission. As a small nonprofit, we depend on course tuition fees to operate. Because we place great importance on creating a safe and supportive environment for our students, we reserve the right not to accept as students anyone we believe would disturb that environment.

Private Classes Terms & Conditions

Registration, promotion, and class enrollment are the sole responsibility of the client organizing the class. Upon request, IMPACT can provide promotional materials such as class description, photo, and logo.

Our minimum class size is 8 participants. If the minimum enrollment is not met 48 hours prior to the class start date, IMPACT Bay Area reserves the right to cancel or reschedule the class, in which case the client will lose any deposit paid.

For classes and courses 3-hours or longer, participants (or their guardians) are required to complete a safety waiver.

A non-refundable and non-transferrable deposit of $500 is required for any scheduled private class no less than 2 weeks prior to the class start date. If the class is scheduled within 2 weeks of the class date, the deposit is due upon receiving the invoice. The remaining balance must be paid by the start of the class date.

If you request to cancel or reschedule your class within 14 days of the start date, your deposit will not be refunded. To cancel a private class, contact us at [email protected] or by phone at (510) 208-0474.

COVID-19 Policies

Our priority, as always, is to provide a safe and healthy class environment for you to learn powerful and empowering self-defense skills, with consideration for higher risk individuals in our classes and on our staff. Please review the below policies carefully before signing up for a class. Effective starting in October 2023:

  • Masks are required for all public classes.
  • Proof of vaccination is not required.
  • Rapid testing is not required. However, if you have COVID-19 symptoms or a known recent exposure, we strongly encourage you to take a rapid test at home before coming to class. If you test positive, do not come to class; contact IMPACT for rescheduling options.
  • During class, all participants are encouraged to wash hands or use hand sanitizer before drills and practice fights. Sanitizing wipes will be available if you wish to sanitize shared equipment before using it.
  • We invite you to take any additional precautions that feel safe for you, such as social distancing and hand washing during class.
