Review for Impact Personal Safety, SoCal, Los Angeles, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I had heard about Impact from a friend years ago. It had always been on my bucket list, but while I made skydiving and moving across the country happen, I kept somehow making excuses for why learning how to defend myself wasn't really a priority.

After taking the Women's Basics course, I realize that a lot of my resistance was to how afraid I was to feel some powerful emotions. I cried so much my first class! It's a pretty big moment when you realize how many times you've allowed yourself to be victimized. I'm not blaming myself for the actions of others, but I do see how my not standing up for myself (physically, verbally, etc.) made it that much easier for those people to target me.

My instructors were so supportive and understanding. They made it safe for me to feel all of my big feelings while expressing loads of confidence in my ability to master the material. It was contagious. I am absolutely in love with Impact's training - and everyone I met there. Everyone, everyone, everyone should take this course.
