This Advanced Class is something new!

Advanced Weekend (open to all genders)!!

If you are interested in taking this course, please send an email to IMPACTPersonalSafety@gmail.com with “Advanced Weekend” in the subject line.

Once we get enough interest, we will schedule a class.

If you and your partner have taken Basics, why not take this Advanced weekend together – It will be SO MUCH FUN in that IMPACT kind of way!!

This curriculum will be adapted from the Women’s Advanced Course for this weekend but will include most of the same elements:

You’ll work on taking your adrenaline management skills to a higher level by reviewing Basics techniques and building on them with some of our favorite fight scenarios. Because 80% of rapes are committed by someone the victim knows, you’ll delve deeper into how to deal with “familiars” with “mid-level dissuasions.” You’ll up the ante with reversals by adding sheets, blankets and pillows you have to deal with in order to land a good strike. You’ll learn what to do to protect someone else and how to be an active bystander. You’ll answer the question: what if I’m attacked in a small space? with our “elevator fights,” and most thrilling of all: what if I can’t see? That’s right, Jedi, you’ll discover you don’t need your vision in order to have a successful fight.


Women’s Advanced Course

After Basics, our students had more “what if” questions. What if I can’t see when I’m attacked? What if I’m with my partner? What if there are several assailants? We expanded our curriculum to address these questions. Our research to develop these solutions is unique in the industry and the source of our cutting-edge programs.
