Empowerment Self-Defense, a Complement to Advocacy
Take a sample Empowerment Self-Defense course with the experienced facilitators of IMPACT Colorado. Practice using your voice, setting boundaries, and doing defensive movements. As one of the most researched and effective violence prevention protocols available world-wide, ESD teaches uncomplicated, effective, inclusive techniques. ESD is a carefully-honed methodology that is survivor-focused, addresses the realities of violence, and promotes the spectrum of responses, while being trauma-informed, non-prescriptive, non-victim-blaming, widely-available, easy-to-learn, and both primary prevention and promoting healing. IMPACT Colorado teaches in rural communities.
