At IMPACT we believe everybody has the right to be safe and the ability to protect themselves. We envision a world where people walk with confidence, speak up, and don’t let fear limit their lives. Personal and social change are possible when people experience the strength of their bodies and the power of their voices.

More of IMPACT's Mission
Preventing abuse before it is perpetrated requires the
bravery and skills to initiate hard conversations, work for social change, and
advocate for safe communities. IMPACT gives people the experience of being
effective in the face of fear as well as useful strategies to channel that
confidence toward prevention.
Nearly half of IMPACT's students are survivors of abuse and trauma. Instructors create a supportive
environment and openly acknowledge the fears and struggles associated with learning self-defense. IMPACT classes give students the experience of being powerful in their bodies, which offers many survivors a unique opportunity for healing.
