This 90-minute class provides an intro to IMPACT Bay Area's style of empowerment self-defense! Students develop intuition, situational awareness, congruent body language and powerful verbal skills to deescalate and deter assault and harassment. Students will also learn and practice a few simple and effective physical self-defense techniques. The physical skills trained in our longer classes provide a broad range of options for dealing with violence in worst-case scenarios, but even this short class offers a toolbox of great skills for keeping yourself safe.
We know that most assaults can be avoided or prevented using awareness, intuition, body language, and voice. This class will provide valuable tools for staying safe.
