This single weekend format of our Basics Course is a comprehensive training with lots of practice, covering the emotional, mental and physical aspects of self-defense. This course gives students the opportunity to practice full-force on an "attacker" instructor in a well-padded suit who plays the role of an assailant. Practicing these full-force techniques, taught by a female instructor, allows our students to experience the benefits of "muscle memory" - their bodies will remember the techniques in a crisis situation. Verbal and body-language boundary-setting is also practiced to de-escalate situations before they become physical. We teach in an emotionally supportive environment conducive to learning and healing.
This course meets in Oakland.

Boundary Workshops are taught in the same emotionally supportive environment as IMPACT's other courses.
-The Boundary Workshop focuses on setting boundaries verbally, with body language, and using other methods before a situation gets physical.
-There is no "mock assailant" - just a female instructor/coach.
-Students practice, through role-playing with instructors and other students, being more comfortable setting boundaries with familiar people and strangers.
-Students who are new to IMPACT and alumni are welcome to enroll in the Boundary Workshop.
-This course is for Women-Only and meets in Oakland on Sunday, October 7, 2007, from 11:00am to 3:00pm.
