ESD News + Events
Empowerment Self-Defense gives us the power to choose how to respond to violence, without judgement or victim blaming.
For many who have experienced family violence, sexual assault, or other trauma, the experience of being physically powerful in the face of a simulated assault is a unique healing experience. IMPACT instructors are sensitive to abuse and related issues.
ESD Is Expanding
IMPACT is committed to a teaching environment with women in leadership roles.
Empowerment Self-Defense is a holistic approach to personal safety which teaches tools to combat the whole spectrum of violence, from verbal harassment to physical violence.
ESD is an evidenced-based primary violence prevention system. It teaches individuals how to interrupt violence by listening to their intuition, assessing their options, asserting boundaries, using de-escalation strategies, and provides tools for a range of mental, verbal and physical responses.
ESD Global is a US-based nonprofit organization (NGO) that envisions a world where people can live safe, violence-free lives. ESD Global is dedicated to making Empowerment Self-Defense (ESD) accessible around the world through increasing public awareness of its profound benefits.
