PUBLIC CLASS CALENDAR

Check out our upcoming class calendar and get registered for our personal safety classes! Click on the class you are interested in to be taken to our registration page.

At this point in time we are requiring all of our students to be vaccinated in order to take our public classes. Later in the summer or fall, as things open up, we hope to eliminate the requirement for vaccination for public in person classes.  At this time, because those classes include close contact with our instructors, and lots of loud voices, bear with us as we try to do our best to put safety first. If you are unvaccinated and would still like to take a class, please reach out to kayla.berry@impact-colorado.org, and we can work to set up something private for you.

IMPACT FOUNDATIONS (short format)

What to Expect:

Become proficient in our three pillars of self-defense (awareness, intuition, and boundary setting) in a fast and effective way. Use these foundations to build your confidence and watch as you successfully defend yourself through our exclusive role-play scenarios. These classes are perfect for the person wanting to learn the basics of self-defense and grow your communication skills, or someone who is looking for specialized personal safety skills designed for beginners.

Choose from our IMPACT Fundamentals (which incorporates our role-play scenarios) or our Introduction to Empowerment Self Defense (which do not use our role-play scenarios).

IMPACT INTENSIVE (long format)

What to Expect:

Our most comprehensive trauma-informed and empowerment-based self-defense class with the goal to help people prepare for and to avoid potentially violent situations and to fight back and escape when physically attacked. These classes teach de-escalating tense situations, boundary setting and assertiveness, self-advocacy, knowing when to escape, and learning when and how to use physical self-defense skills in realistic scenarios to help people counteract the freeze response. These classes give participants the confidence to resolve or de-escalate conflict wherever it arises and are perfect for the person wanting to learn how to fight and practice mastery of all techniques in the adrenalized state.

IMPACT SPECIALIZED

What to Expect:

Choose from a variety of our specialized classes that range from beginner level to advanced. Our specialized classes are designed to answer the “what if” questions and further along everyone’s confidence in their ability to defend themselves, their families, and other people. We build off of our foundational skills of awareness, intuition, and boundary setting and expand on our physical techniques all while bringing in more complex scenarios like family safety planning, bystander intervention, specific environmental fights, and even how to defend yourself against an armed assailant. These classes are perfect for people who are looking to grow their personal safety journey and want to explore more specific scenarios.

FIGHT NIGHTS

What to Expect:

Our Fight Nights are a chance to get together to refresh your skills or learn more specific techniques for a variety of situations. If you are an alumni, we have fight nights to help you refresh your skills and build upon certain skill sets. If you have never taken an IMPACT class before, we have some fight nights to help build a foundation of knowledge about specific topics. Check out our classes for more details!
