At Second Sense, we are excited to include the 1Touch Self Defense course as a part of our regular programming to help empower individuals with vision loss to feel increased self-confidence and independence.

The 1Touch Self Defense course is specifically designed for people with vision loss. No prior martial arts experience is required.

  • dexterity,
  • tactile sensitivity, and
  • mobility.
