The Dean of Students Office is just one of many units at the University of Michigan invested in campus safety and violence prevention. And just one of the prevention programs they’re offering students this year is a three day self-defense class taught by IMPACT Chicago and co-sponsored by the U-M Alumnae Council.
Teaching self-defense helps prevent, minimize, and stop violence. The IMPACT instructor team includes a personal coach and a padded attacker, offering a supportive environment and a chance to experience full-force physical techniques while adrenaline is high and fine motor skills are low (as is likely to be the case in a real-life emergency.)
