Find your courage and use it to make the world around you safer.

At IMPACT we believe everyone has the right to be safe and the ability to protect themselves. Our self-defense programs give people the skills to stay calm and focused in unsafe situations. Our abuse prevention programs give schools, disability service organizations, and communities the tools to develop policies and expectations that keep everyone safe.

IMPACT offers:

  • Self-defense classes that are open to the public.
  • Customized workshops for schools, disability service organizations, community groups, businesses, human service agencies, and domestic violence and sexual assault survivors that cover topics in:
    • abuse prevention
    • self-defense
    • assertive communication
    • conflict de-escalation programs

Personal and social change are possible when people experience the strength of their bodies and the power of their voices.
