Find the Class that’s Right for You
IMPACT teaches effective boundary setting and empowerment self-defense skills to prevent violence and create safer communities. Our classes are tailored to meet the needs of people of different ages, genders, and identities. We train students to fight full-force, under adrenaline, against a padded mock assailant to ingrain our techniques into muscle memory. This means that the body will remember—and respond appropriately—if you ever need your skills in the real world.
