Hey, IPS friends and students! Here's a chance to pipe in for our classes and view of women's empowerment. 300 characters only...
Many of my friends male and female and I have taken the basic course and in some cases others. Being short and fat most of my life I was always afraid of other men. While I have had other self defense/martial arts training it was not until I took the men's course that I lost those fears. The course saved the life of one of our friends when a man tried to drag her into an alley. This training is totally worth the expense.

Because Your Life Is Worth Fighting For! We offer smart, effective verbal & physical adrenaline-state, full-force self-defense training. IMPACT Personal Safety is a 501(c)3, nonprofit organization that teaches adrenalin-based, self-defense using highly trained padded assailants.

This IMPACT Personal Safety Fan Page is for the Los Angeles chapter of the national, IMPACT non-profit organization. For more information about IMPACT in other areas, check out our website: http://impactpersonalsafety.com/?q=node/9

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.

Mission: Our vision is to help create a world where self-defense is no longer necessary because women, children and men will not live in fear of being victims. In the home, our vision is to put a stop to domestic violence and allow couples, and parents and children to live together peacefully, setting healthy boundaries and standing up for themselves. In the workplace, our vision is to end sexual harassment. In the global community, we envision a world where the type of safety we enjoy in first world nations is a global civil right. In society, our goal is for every person regardless of age, gender, race, or physical or mental ability to be able to go where they want, when they want, day or night, feeling comfortable and safe moving through their daily lives.

A New Frontier in Domestic Violence Prevention: Coercive Control Bans - Ms. Magazine

"... two states—first Hawaii and then California—have recently taken the groundbreaking step of passing the nation’s first laws against coercive control.

Coercive control is nonphysical abuse such as psychological, sexual, financial and emotional abuse. It can include stalking, harassment, gaslighting, intimidation and threats. The goal of coercive control is to make the other person subordinate or dependent by isolating them from sources of support, regulating their everyday lives, exploiting their resources and capacities, and depriving them of the means needed for independence, resistance and escape."

Thank you Impact Personal Safety of Colorado for sharing this!

Our padded instructors are the reason we’re able to do full force strikes during in-person classes. They are still an integral part of our online classes because they allow our students to practice verbal strategies with a mock assailant. So to our padded instructors, we say thank you!

“I wanted (and still want) my niece and nephew to have the best possible start in life.  I knew that Mom and Dad were taking care if the essentials for physical/mental/spiritual/emotional good health and I wanted to give them the gift of safety so they would always know that they have the tools to judge their situations accurately and keep themselves safe.”

Girls Fight Back

I had a teenage student tell me that she would feel uncomfortable enforcing her boundaries with someone older than her because, “He’s going to say who are you to tell me what to do?”

Who is she to tell them what to do? She’s the owner of her body, she makes the decisions PERIOD and that is enough!

I told her that she is the only person who has full authority of her body, her space and her safety. She has EVERY RIGHT to speak up for what she needs and that person she’s confronting about violating her boundaries should listen without hesitation regardless of their age, status, job title, relationship, etc.

Bodily autonomy is imperative. We need to teach our kids at an early age that they alone own their bodies and that they have the final say in who touches them or gets in their space.

As teens and adults, it will make setting boundaries easier because we’ll be used to speaking up for what makes us uncomfortable instead of thinking that we have to “let” someone have access to us.

General information

IMPACT has its origins in the 1970s, when a female black belt was assaulted and raped by two men. This prompted a group of martial artists to study the different ways in which women and men are assaulted and to seek out the most effective means of real-life defense. Their research and consultations with survivors of assault, convicted assailants, law enforcement personnel, engineers, psychologists and trauma counselors form the basis for IMPACT’s training.
