Length: 6 hours
Class Size: Maximum 20 women
Registration Deadline: TBD
This course is open to all women 18 and older.
IMPACT is a highly specialized self-defense program that is based on the idea that learning is best accomplished by "doing." A specially trained "mugger" instructor dons state-of-the-art customized padding so that you can practice the full-force defensive tactics. You will learn by fighting in scenarios that are as realistic as possible. IMPACT understands that fighting back is an emotional as well as a physical process and provides a supportive environment for healing and learning. All courses are taught in teams of female and male instructors highly trained in dealing with emotional process.
It doesn't matter what size or age you are, or what physical limitations you have, learn to protect yourself in case of an attack on your life. No matter where you live, the effect violence has on a woman's soul makes ANY and EVERY form of violence a life-long wound. Not only will IMPACT empower you with defensive skills, you will gain confidence by building a voice against violence. Take this class with your mother, sister, daughter, granddaughter or girlfriend. Together, you will learn simple, effective self-defense skills.
Attire: Wear comfortable clothes (stretchy knits/long sleeved t-shirts) and tennis shoes.
