Now this looks like a powerful and scrappy fight! Go IMPACT Personal Safety

Day #906 of 1,000

Next on our list of celebrations is IMPACT Personal Safety. They have been fortunate enough for the opportunity to offer both virtual and in-person classes and work within schools to teach IMPACT to high school students.

This month, in celebration of Founder's Day (Happy Birthday season, Lisa!) they're offering discounts for upcoming classes to push Lisa's fighting spirit and teaching to more people.

"I don't fight any more, I haven't for years. This is a huge loss in my life. I loved fighting with a passion I had never felt before. I still feel it when students are fighting and I'm coaching, but it is not the same…it is a huge loss in my life.

We're offering a discount on classes so people can come and kick some ass for me. I'll come to the graduation and cheer them on! The discount is for the February and March classes. Please pass this on to as many people as possible to make February an ass-kicking month!" - Lisa Gaeta

Happy Founder's Day to IMPACT Personal Safety, Happy Birthday to Lisa Gaeta. What a reason to celebrate!

Impact Global officially Launched today. Impact Global IMPACT Personal Safety

✨The second day of the All-Genders Training is over! Today the participants had the opportunity to learn more about empowerment self-defense.

👉They were introduced to the 5 principles of ESD: Think, Yell, Run, Fight, Tell. Then, they attended their first IMPACT class, learning some physical self-defense techniques.

This training is part of the project "E forte si grua", organized in the framework of the “Gender Sensitive post-earthquake recovery and reconstruction” project, implemented by UN Women - UN Women Albania, and supported financially by the Government of Sweden – through the UN Albania SDG Acceleration Fund.

ESD Global Self-Defense ESD Albania IMPACT Personal Safety

👣DAY 3 - today is the last day of the 3 days complementary training organized by ESD Global Self-Defense and Aikido Albania / ESD Albania. Our graduates will be trained by IMPACT instructors.

👉What is IMPACT?

IMPACT is a technique that, like our ESD workshops, seeks to end the circle of violence by different groups at risk through simple and effective techniques that anyone regardless of age, physical condition, race, ethnicity or social class can do.
🌟 However (and here is the magic) they deal with SUITs, which are people who put on a special, specific suit, which allows whoever uses it to receive strong blows and on sensitive parts without suffering damage.
💪Through IMPACT, ESD graduates can really test their strength!

📌The training is organized in the framework of the “Gender Sensitive post-earthquake recovery and reconstruction” project, implemented by UN Women and supported financially by the Government of Sweden – through the UN Albania SDG Acceleration Fund.

It's Pride Month, and us at IPSCO, along with IMPACT Personal Safety, wanted to share some tips on how to be a good ally. We hope everyone has a great and safe Pride! We continue to work for a world where people can be their authentic selves without fear of discrimination or violence.

We are launching a new blog with IMPACT Personal Safety called IMPACT Your Life on June 1st! We know that taking an IMPACT class can affect your whole life so we wanted to give people the opportunity to stay connected outside of the classroom. Read insights from our experts, hear success stories, get updated on world news, and engage in community discussions in our forum. Watch our social medias for the release!

“It was a delight to speak in front of a well informed and receptive audience. The feedback we received let us know we are all on the right track.”

~ Donald Hart, VPEC 2020 Speaker / Certified IMPACT Instructor IMPACT Personal Safety

Share your expertise with an informed and receptive audience.

I love this lady! Self-defense is self-defense regardless of your age!

Because Your Life Is Worth Fighting For! We offer smart, effective verbal & physical adrenaline-stat IMPACT exists because one in three women worldwide will be assaulted in her lifetime.

After the IMPACT training, that number drops to one in thirty and those who are assaulted report successfully defending themselves in the situation and living to tell about it. We teach a full-force self-defense using real life situations. Combining the expertise of martial artists with research taken from both victims and perpetrators of violent crimes, our highly developed program is designed to provide our students with realistic and useful fighting skills for themselves.

Grounding yourself after a high-stress situation can be really helpful. Whether it’s physically or verbally defending yourself, taking a hard test, or doing something new, taking the time to recenter yourself can help reestablish control, calm the mind, and/or help process the situation that just happened.

Trigger Warning: Discussion of Assault/Simulated Attack
✨✨✨
Self-defense was a class I never saw myself taking, but so far this experience has been one of the best I’ve had. Every time I tell someone I take self-defense they always mention how nice that must be, and I tell them it's great! In the beginning of the class, I thought that learning about boundaries and how to set them were not gonna be as helpful as learning how to fight. I soon realized that learning how to set boundaries can be applied in my everyday life. I can solve problems effectively, whether they are big or small. And, the fact that we get to practice realistic interactions makes it even better. Although it can be uncomfortable and not taken as seriously at times, just being there experiencing it helps. The fact that we are learning how to defend ourselves is powerful, and I think it is something that every highschool student or adult should learn. Overall my experience was positive. It is scary to think that it is a possibility that one of us will have to use what we learned in class, but it is better to know than to be defenseless. There was one fight that actually made me panic while fighting. We were in the dark and I could feel the instructor on top of me and I was scared. Thankfully, Dani was there to talk me through it. But that rush of adrenaline I felt when the fight started was unlike anything I’ve felt. Because we practice these realistic fights I feel like I am prepared for the worst, and I can even avoid that because of those strategies I was taught.

There is a difference between fighting for sport and fighting for your life. In sport fighting, the combatants willingly agree to fight at a certain day and time with pre-established rules and then prepare for said fight. Fighting for life has none of these. The target doesn’t consent to the fight, there are no rules or referees to protect anyone, and, if you’re unaware of the signs, targets may go into denial.
