Why This Course?

We’ve written a longer blog post that explains more about why this course is important and what you can expect. You can read that post here.

Requirements to Attend

This class is for women-identified persons only. Carefully chosen male instructors will be in attendance, but the class will be run by women, for women. The material we cover can include emotionally challenging segments, so we will do everything possible to create a safe, supportive environment.

Students must be 18 years old or older. Participants younger than 18 may be considered on a case-by-case basis. Please contact the Director of IMPACT Safety to discuss exceptions.

There is no upper limit for age. We have taught grandmothers, great-grandmothers, and people in wheelchairs. If you have a commitment to your own safety-or aspire to have one) then we can work with you.

Date & Time

  • Friday, February 9, 2024: 5 pm-9 pm
  • Saturday, February 10, 2024: 9 am-5 pm

Participants must attend all three days. This is a weekend-long intensive. People who cannot attend all three days should not enroll.


For the first time ever, we are offering a Bring One, Get One discount for registration.

This extraordinary training should cost $1000 per person, but for this year we’re slashing that to $500—and we’re letting you bring a friend for free. We are that committed to helping you make 2024 your most self-confident, empowered year ever.

But no good thing can last forever. We don’t know when (or if) we’ll offer this class again. This deal is only good for the first five pairs that sign up. Don’t miss out on this life-changing opportunity!

We believe in making this invaluable training accessible to all, regardless of ability to pay. Please see our sliding scale policy for more information.

Your Safety, Your Power

This isn’t just a class; it’s a movement. A movement to reclaim your space, your voice, and your power. Join us, and let’s make a lasting impact together.

Class size is limited. The $500 BOGO offer is limited. Please enroll now—or risk losing out!
