1Touch™ Self-Defense Project for the Blind
KATMA will be spearheading the 1Touch™ Project in the Savannah and Low Country area. This is a program focused on providing self-defense to people who are blind or have low vision. Learn more about the benefits of the program and inquire about training.
The 1Touch™ Project is a registered 501(c)3 non-profit organization. 1Touch™ explores participant’s hidden assumptions regarding their own disability -- their personal perception of their blindness and the otherwise unchallenged insecurities built upon that perception. Learning these techniques has proven highly effective in the development of: independence, self-confidence, spatial orientation, mobility and dexterity, and tactile sensitivity.
The self-defense techniques are fully accessible and designed for practicality. There is no age limit, no physical strength needed or prior martial arts background necessary. 1Touch™ works with male/female, children, seniors, veterans, professionals in blindness education, sighted, people who are visually impaired/Blind, deaf deaf/blind and people with multiple disabilities.
